Newsletter July 2021

The July newsletter from the HPC team (2021)

Dear HPC users,


In this newsletter I want to draw your attention to the next course HPC Introduction:


  1. HPC Course: The next three-day course “Introduction to HPC” has been scheduled for September 20th to 22nd from 10am to 17pm. The course will be given online with BigBlueButton and the agenda for the full course is as follows:

    Day 1 – Introduction to HPC (HPC Cluster, Job Scheduler, …)
    Day 2 – Parallel Programming
    Day 3 – Using Matlab on the HPC Cluster

    Therefore, each day targets a different audience and it is perfectly ok to only participate in the sessions that suit your particular needs. If interested, please sign up for the course in Stud.IP (the course id is 5.WR.1037). More information about the course is also available in the HPC wiki.
  2. Dates: Please take note following upcoming events
  3. Software News: The following modules are now available on hpc-env/8.3:
    • R/4.1.0-foss-2019b-2021.06
    • Anaconda3/2021.05
    • Kaldi/5.5-fosscuda-2019b_2021.07
