Venue: Robert Gordon University

External Events

This course provides a general introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) using the UK national HPC service, ARCHER, and/or Cirrus as the platforms for the exercises.

Familiarity with desktop computers is presumed but no programming. Linux or HPC experience is required. Programmers can however gain extra benefit from the course as source code for all the practicals will be provided.

The course will run for 2 days. The first day covers the basic concepts underlying the drivers for HPC development, HPC hardware, software, programming models and applications. The second day will provide an opportunity for more practical experience, information on performance and the future of HPC.
