Course overview

HPC2N is offering an ONLINE introduction course to HPC2N and Kebnekaise.

We begin with a short (optional) introduction to Linux, then continue with an introduction to HPC, HPC2N, and a walkthrough of Kebnekaise, including the GPUs and the KNLs. We then look at the module system and loading the software you need, and how to submit jobs through the batch system.

There will be hands-ons as a part of the course, where the participants get the opportunity to load modules, compile programs, and submit jobs to the Kebnekaise system.

Remote/online participation: The course will be streamed. We will use Zoom.

Participation is open to all existing and prospective users of HPC from Swedish institutions.
