HPC Leap Day Event

The High Performance Computing (HPC) team organised an event to celebrate February's bonus day this year. The goal was to introduce the HPC team members to the research community at QMUL, and to have the opportunity to ask the HPC expert in-person about any issue related to the performance of HPC jobs in Apocrita.

Here is a quick summary of what we covered in the session:

Let's talk about Linux and High Performance Computing

On November 15th, our HPC team organised an event called “Let’s talk about Linux and HPC”, which focused on giving an overview of HPC at QMUL. The conference was open to the public and published on Eventbrite.

Approximately 30 people were in attendance between organisers and online or onsite attendees that came to our 2-hour event in the Engineering building at the Mile End campus. During the conference, attendees shared opinions, thoughts and suggestions for future workshops dealing with Linux, Ubuntu and setting up scripts in more detail. They were able to express themselves with the help of mentimeter.
