High Performance Computing Center North
Learn how to run R, Python, and Julia at Swedish HPC centres. We will show you how to find and load the needed modules, how to write a batch script, as well as how to install and use your own packages, and more.
The course will consist of lectures interspersed with hands-on sessions where you get to try out what you have just learned.
This course will consist of three half-days, one for each language. It is a cooperation between HPC2N and UPPMAX.
Remote/online participation: The course will be completely online and we will use Zoom. More information about connecting and such will be sent to the participants close to the course.
Prerequisites: some familiarity with the LINUX command line (recordings from our Linux intro here), basic R, Python, or Julia, depending on which language(s) you are interested in.
Full schedule can be found on the rendered presentations for each course day: https://uppmax.github.io/R-python-julia-HPC/

Participation in the course is free.
Please make sure have an account at SUPR as well as at UPPMAX or HPC2N if you want to participate in the hands-on part of the training. There will be a course project on UPPMAX that can be used to run the examples in during the hands-on. If you don't have an account at SUPR and/or UPPMAX/HPC2N, you will be contacted with further instructions for how to create those. You are encouraged to sign up to SUPR as soon as possible after registering for the course.
NOTE: Kebnekaise has become a local resource. Please also read the page about "Kebnekaise will be retired as a national resource". HPC2N accounts are ONLY meant for people who are at Umeå university, one of HPC2N's partnersites (IRF, LTU, MIUN, SLU), or are in a research group with a PI at one of those. Everyone else must get an account at UPPMAX for this course.
Course project: As part of the hands-on, you may be given temporary access to a course project, which will be used for running the hands-on examples. There are some policies regarding this, that we ask that you follow:
The course uses compute resources provided by the National Academic Infrastructure for Supercomputing in Sweden (NAISS) at UPPMAX partially funded by the Swedish Research Council through grant agreement no. 2022-06725.
