External Events

ENCCS has a network of partners that provide high-quality HPC training events, which we update continuously. Check our suggestions below.

26-27 January 2021

The objective of this course is to give an overview of the COMPSs programming model, which is able to exploit the inherent concurrency of sequential applications and execute them in a transparent manner to the application developer in distributed computing platform.

5 February 2021 

The main purpose of the workshop is to provide information on the goals and future activities of EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) and to provide a forum for a discussion on how the impact on Swedish research of EOSC can be optimised by the engagement of the Swedish universities – individually and supported by suitable national coordination activities.

8-12 February 2021

This workshop organised by VI-HPS, Jülich Supercomputing Centre & RWTH Aachen ITC will give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite, explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively, offer hands-on experience and expert coaching assistance using the tools with your own application running on multi-GPU compute nodes.

8-12 February 2021

This course covers techniques for improving the performance of parallel applications by optimising of the code that runs within each node. The course will cover the main features of modern HPC nodes, including multiple cores, vector floating point units, deep cache hierarchies, and NUMA memory systems. Techniques for efficient programming of these features, using batch processing options and compiler options as well as hand tuning of code will be covered. The course will also contain an introduction to the use of Cray performance analysis tools.

26 February 2021

With the upcoming LUMI supercomputer arriving this year, we start a series of training for the users. The main partition of LUMI is based on AMD GPUs, thus the users should be ready to port their applications to this new architecture. The first training will be about porting CUDA applications to HIP. It will provide an extensive dive into the Hipify tools and showcase many examples.

15 & 22-24 March 2021

GPU Hackathons are 4-5 day intensive hands-on events designed to help computational scientists port their applications to GPUs using libraries, OpenACC, CUDA and other tools by pairing participants with dedicated mentors experienced in GPU programming and development. Representing distinguished scholars and preeminent institutions around the world, these teams of mentors and attendees work together to realize performance gains and speedups by taking advantage of parallel programming on GPUs.

The mission of PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is to enable high-impact scientific discovery and engineering research and development across all disciplines to enhance European competitiveness for the benefit of society.

The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) offers research communities training and education related to the use of SNIC resources. This includes organizing training events and providing online material and documentation.

CodeRefinery organizes a roadshow of hands-on interactive three-day workshops across the Nordics with type-along presentations and live coding, where short tutorials alternate with practical exercises.

SeSE (Swedish e-Science Education) provides basic training in fields where the use of e-Science is emerging and where education can have an immense impact on the research, but also advanced training for students in fields that are already computer-intensive
