High Performance Computing Workshop 2014


Tuesday, April 29, 2014 - 16:00 MDT to Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - 23:00 MDT


The University of Alberta is an important partner in WestGrid and Compute Canada’s large-scale High Performance Computing (HPC) platform. University of Alberta students, researchers and faculty can tap into this platform to achieve their research objectives!

This two-day workshop series was designed to provide HPC-users of all levels with an overview of Compute Canada and WestGrid functions and opportunities. The first two sessions — scheduled for Tuesday, April 29 — are designed as beginner-level background courses. The following sessions — scheduled for Wednesday, April 30 — will build on the knowledge gained in the previous sessions to provide participants with a full suite of tools for making effective use of HPC resources.

Come to one session, or come to them all! 

Please note: A WestGrid account is recommended to participate fully in some of the sessions, but is not required to attend the workshop. If you are interested in obtaining a account, please WestGrid's Getting an Account page for more information.
