We are offering the following course at HPC2N, Umeå University:

Introduction to HPC2N

The course is an introduction to HPC2N's systems, with a focus on the new Kebnekaise cluster. 

The part about Linux (9:00-11:00) can be omitted by those already proficient with this operating system.

At 11:00 we begin with a walkthrough of the systems (Abisko and Kebnekaise), including the GPUs and KNLs on Kebnekaise.

After lunch, we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs.

During the hands-on you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job to
the Kebnekaise cluster.

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