The state of Baden-Württemberg provides several high performance computing resources as part of the bwHPC-C5 project for researchers in the state. This course provides you an overview of this services and teach you how to use them for your research efficiently. 
 
The universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen invite you to this course which focuses on the topics “Introduction into Linux” and “Basic introduction into HPC” 
 
The first part is about the basics of how to use a Linux system and provides the fundamentals for the second part.
 
In the second part you’ll learn how to access and use the bwHPC systems. This includes the efficient usage of the computing nodes, the storage system and utilizing the high performance interconnect network. Further more the course will issue additional and important factors, such as the batch system of the cluster and the optimal data organization. The planned “hands on session” universal cluster (bwUniCluster) on the will deepen what you learned. 
 
 
Part 1: 09:30am - 11:30am - Basics Linux
Part 2: 13:00pm - 16:30pm - Basics bwHPC-Cluster
 
The number of participants is limited. Please register at:

Registation is closed, maximum number of participants reached.

On Wednesday, March 25th 2015, the HPC Competence Center in Freiburg will host the course: "Introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) in Baden-Württemberg". This course is intended for current and future users of the bwHPC clusters (bwUniCluster in Karlsruhe, pre-bwForCluster NEMO in Freiburg). It includes information about access and usage. The event combines talks and tutorials.

The morning session is meant as an introduction for new users and as a refresh and update for former bwGRiD users.

The afternoon session will cover advanced topics and possibly application specific topics. 

If you would like to see a specific topic to be covered in either session, please give us an advance notice and we will try to include it.

The number of participants is limited. Please send an E-mail to bernd.wiebelt@rz.uni-freiburg.de to register.

20141216 NEMO Benchmark Codejam

We cordially invite you to the Workshop “NEMO Benchmark CodeJam” on December 16th in the Rechenzentrum.
When Dec 16, 2014
from 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM
Where Room -113, Rechenzentrum, Hermann-Herder-Strasse 10, Freiburg
Contact Name

The workshop is intended for:

  • "Early adopters": Scientists who want to make use of the resources. It is old hardware and comes with restrictions, but (hey!) it is extra computing power at your disposal.

  • "Benchmark providers": Scientists that can provide typical use cases that could steer the acquisition process.

You should have some experience in programming and have a typical use case which is important for your work.Together with you, we will see whether

  • we can get your code to run on the cluster

  • your use case can be transformed into a benchmark that can be given to vendors

The Workshop will be on December 16th from 10:00 AM to 16:00 PM.It will be held at the Rechenzentrum, Hermann-Herder-Strasse 10.

If you would like to attend, please write an E-Mail to bernd.wiebelt@rz.uni-freiburg.de.

We recommend that you apply for access to the cluster in advance:
