  • ELIXIR-EXCELERATE HPC Train-the-Researcher

    6 - 7 April 2017

    Málaga, Spain

    ELIXIR-EXCELERATE HPC Train-the-Researcher This course to be held 6-7 April 2017 in Malaga, Spain is part of the Train-the-Researcher (TtR) subtask of the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE project. The course is organised as a two-day mini-symposium, and aims at introducing the participants in the complexities of parallel programming with emphasis on genome-scale comparison algorithms. The theoretical aspects of this course cover (a) the parallel programing background, with a quick overview in the architectures and programming models; and (b) the basis for genome-scale sequence comparison algorithms. The practical aspects are organised to master the concepts of data distribution and balancing using a Map-Reduce strategy and internal coding with MPI. Organization Overview This course has been prepared for two days including theoretical and practical parts. The first day will start with a brief introduction to HPC condensed during the morning. A practical introductory part to HPC will complete the first day. The second day will firstly provide the necessary background on the multiple genome comparison application GECKO. Secondly, on the same day, we will motivate the potential HPC techniques to be applied to this application and will let the students organize in groups to start thinking about a parallelization approach and later on implementing it. At the end of the day each group will briefly describe how they have implemented it and will present their results (i.e. speedup). Methods The course is comprised of practical exercises preceded by short lectures. Exercises will be conducted primarily in the C programming language using the MPI library. Target Audience This course is open to bioinformatics users and developers that aim at using HPC resources to extend their activity beyond the limitations of sequential applications on commodity hardware. This course will not suit participants that are looking for entry-level concepts in HPC. 20 participants will be selected by CV and motivation. Gender equality will be an additional aspect to select the participants. As an applicant to this course you need to fill out your personal information, attach your CV and provide a short paragraph to explain why you want to apply for this course. Optionally if you are part of an ELIXIR node you can also attach a letter of endorsement from the node manager. The last application day will be March 3rd, the result of the candidate selection will be notified March 8th. The course registration is free, but by sending this participation you commit to attend the course in case you are selected as it is stated in the conditions/policy document of the registration form. Pre-Requisites This course has a broad technical scope and hence programming skills are required. Experience in the command-line, writing and compiling C code would make the course easier to follow. 2017-04-06 09:00:00 UTC 2017-04-07 17:00:00 UTC Málaga, Málaga, Spain Málaga Málaga Málaga Spain Sequence analysis Computer science [] [] software developers, bioinformaticians workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • Water Purification Systems for Regulated Industries

    23 - 24 October 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Water Purification Systems for Regulated Industries The course consists of interactive lectures, discussions, and imbedded exercises. Participants will also be placed in several real life situations where they complete a compliance review of a schematic process flow diagram, analyze failures using trend reports, critique a risk assessment, and perform a change control analysis including the impact of requested or proposed modifications. The course is designed to provide the attendee with a practical understanding of the following topics: •Basic water chemistry •Water quality selection criteria •EPA, EU, and WHO drinking water standards •The governing regulatory agencies with direct impact on water systems •Analytical water grades (1, 2, 3) and reagent water types (I, II, III, IV, with A, B & C subgroups) •Pharmacopeia water grades (Purified, Highly Purified, Water for Injection & Clean Steam) •Pretreatment component equipment - selection and operating principals •Final treatment options (reverse osmosis, vapor compression, single-effect and multiple-effect stills) •Opportunities for energy and water resource conservation •Point of use criteria such as temperature, location, time-of-day, and demand (GPM & GPD) •System design including materials of construction, generation, storage and distribution options •Trend reports (analysis, problem identification, predictive value) •Control systems, data historian, secure access, set points and alarms •Managing performance deviations and component failure •Direct and in-direct impact analysis •Quality by design including risk assessment •Instrument calibration for critical, non-critical, and informational only devices •Maintenance impacts to system performance, reliability, and validation •The importance of as-built documentation - user and field directed changes 2017-10-23 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-24 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Regulatory AffairsQualityComplianceR&DValidationManufacturingMaintenanceEngineering 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served water chemistryWater quality water systemsSystem design Pharmacopeia water grades Control systemsInstrument calibration
  • Business Forum: Advanced data management for added value

    6 May 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event Business Forum: Advanced data management for added value Research and development institutions annually produce zetabytes of biological information, of which only terabytes are used by the bio-industry. There is a large biological information, the big biodata, still to be explored by the bio-industry, which can add value into new products and services. The Business Forum: advanced data management for added value, organized by and PBio, will bring together four national companies related to the health sector, the sea, agriculture and bioindustry, and tell their stories to inspire new ideas and new businesses. There will also be an opportunity to discuss best practices in curation, management and use of biodata, as well as the use of bioinformatics tools essential to its success. 2019-05-06 14:30:00 UTC 2019-05-06 18:00:00 UTC Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2780-156 Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciê - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec [] Clinical ScientistsbioinformaticiansBiologists, Genomicists, Computer Scientistssoftware developers, bioinformaticiansbiology and bioinformatics sophomore undergraduatesbiocurators Institutions and other external Institutions or individualsIndustry health professionalsplant researchersBiomedical researchers studies human diseases or developmental biology 120 meetings_and_conferences [] Biodata, Bioinformatics, Biodata
