We are offering a course on introduction to the HPC2N's systems with a focus on the new Kebnekaise cluster. It is a repeat of the course held in the fall, with the exception of an optional part about Linux.

We go through both systems, Abisko and Kebnekaise, including the GPUs. After lunch, we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs.

There will be a hands-on during which you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job on the Kebnekaise cluster. For those who are interested, there will be a guided tour of the machine rooms.

Participation is free. Lunch and coffee/tea will be provided.

Please bring a laptop, and make sure you have an account at HPC2N if you want to participate in the hands-on part of the training.

Prerequisites: nothing particular

Instructors: Jerry Eriksson, Birgitte Brydsö, Pedro Ojeda May

Time and date: 21. February 2017, 09:00 - 17:00. (First two hours dedicated to an introduction to Linux - this part can be omitted if you are proficient already).
