High Performance Computing Center North
Introduction to HPC2N's systems with a focus on the new Kebnekaise cluster. We begin with a walkthrough of the system, including the GPUs.
After lunch, we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs.
During the hands-on you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job.
For those who are interested, there will be a guided tour of the machine rooms.
