Introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) for Astronomers by ADACS
November 27, 2017 @ 9:00 am - November 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pmFREE
The size and complexity of Astronomical data continue to grow swiftly, and while this presents great opportunities it also poses challenges to traditional methods of data storage, reduction, and analysis. To assist Astronomers in addressing these challenges, we are presenting a three-day workshop introducing the fundamentals of HPC and some of the skills necessary to effectively utilise its power. During the final session, there will also be a clinic held by representatives from Pawsey, Swinburne, and NCI, where you can discuss one-on-one how to port your applications and workflow to HPC resources.
Attendance will be strictly limited to a small number to provide a personalised and hands-on experience. Please register here.
