Intro to Scientific Computing and HPC 4-6 June 2024

Are you starting your summer internship and you are unsure about the computational resources available for you? Are you a doctoral researcher who has recently started working on their research? Would you like to have more resources for your data science tasks? Join our hands-on course for data science workflows with high performance computing.
Intro to Scientific Computing and HPC June 2024

June 2024 / Intro to Scientific Computing and HPC

Part of Scientific Computing in Practice lecture series at Aalto University.

Audience: Everyone doing computational work, special focus for summer workers who are just starting.

About the course: Summer Kickstart is a three day courses for researchers to get started with the available computational resources at Aalto and CSC (the Finnish national computing center) and any other HPC system that you might have access to. On the day one we start with the basic intro on scientific computing and parallelization.

On days two and three we cover one by one steps on how to get started on the local computational clusters: learning by doing with lots of examples and hands-on exercises.

By the end of the course you get the hints, ready solutions and copy/paste examples on how to find, run and monitor your applications, and manage your data. In addition to how to optimize your workflow in terms of filesystem traffic, memory usage etc.

The course is done in collaboration with CSC, University of Helsinki, Tampere University. Please read description and prerequisites here:  

NOTE: It is important to register even if you cannot attend all days, because you will get access to the recordings and to the Q&A document.

Time, date: 4,5,6.Jun, 11:55-16:00 (with breaks)
