Researchers can build supercomputing skills in fall training seriesPosted on September 6, 2018
Penn State researchers looking to build their high-performance computing (HPC) skills can get both basic and intermediate training through a series of workshops hosted by the Institute for Computational and Data Sciences (ICDS) this fall. Each session is free but requires registration as seating is limited.
The four-part series is designed to give an overview of high-performance computing and its uses in research, and how to use Penn State’s high-performance research cloud, known as the ICDS Advanced CyberInfrastructure (ICDS-ACI). The ICDS-ACI supercomputer is open to any Penn State student, faculty or staff member with a sponsored account.
Seminar 1, ICDS-ACI System Basics, will address how to get an ICDS-ACI account, what supercomputing resources are available to Penn State researchers, how to connect and how to navigate the system interface.
Seminar 2, Submitting Your First Job, will highlight system allocations, how to run simple jobs, how to move data to and from the system and how batch jobs operate within the system environment.
Seminar 3, Intro to HPC Programming, will provide an overview of how to compile basic codes, how to link to system libraries, best practices with parallel coding techniques, and how to run simple jobs in batch mode.
Seminar 4, Intermediate HPC, wraps up the series by providing information on version control, automating compilation, diagnosing bottlenecks, input and output management, and optimization techniques.
For sessions 2, 3 and 4, attendees should have an active ICDS-ACI account. In addition, attendees should bring a laptop with Exceed on Demand, a program that allows users to interact with the systems through a graphical user interface (GUI), installed on it.
Each session will take place multiple times throughout the fall. Anyone interested in attending a workshop may register online.
