  • Energy Efficency in HPC @Cineca

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Energy Efficency in HPC @Cineca https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/energy-efficency-in-hpc-cineca Description: With the steaming out of Moore's law and the end of Dennard's scaling the pace dictated on the performance increase of High Performance Computing Systems among generations has led to power constrained architectures and systems. In addition power consumption represents a significant cost factor in the overall HPC system economy. For this reasons in the recent years researchers, supercomputing centers and major vendors have developed new tools and methodologies to measure and optimize the energy consumption of large scale high performance system installation. Due to the link between energy consumption, power consumption and execution time of the application executed by the final user it is important for these tools and methodology to consider all these aspects empowering the final user and the system administrator with the capability of finding the best configuration given different high level objectives.  The school will give an introductory course on the fundamental concept of power consumption and energy efficiency in HPC systems. Then it will focuses on the mechanisms that today computing elements and systems provide in terms of monitoring and control the power and energy dissipation. Finally it will introduce and give hand ons on a set of tools for reducing the energy consumption in HPC devices.  The school is organized in four main sessions driving the audience from the physical and engineering principles underlying power consumption in supercomputing systems to the practical usage of state-of-the-art tools for monitoring and controlling the energy efficiency of supercomputing machines and workloads. The tools that will be covered are the MSR-SAFE (LLNL), MERIC (IT4I), COUNTDOWN (UNIBO), GEOPM (Intel) libraries.  Skills: By the end of the course, participants will be expected to: have a good understanding of the principles underlying the power consumption, energy dissipation in high performance computing nodes recognize trade-offs and implications of changing the power consumption in scientific computing systems during the execution of scientific computing applications have a clear view on the state-of-the-art and of practice in controlling the power consumption and energy efficiency of supercomputing nodes and processors. learn the internals and the usage of a set of user-space run-time libraries for controlling/optimizing the power consumption and energy efficiency in x86 computing nodes while executing user's applications. learn how to use these tools for optimize the energy consumption of your codes. Target Audience: Researchers, student, system administrator, application developers who may wish to limit the environmental impact of their computations, as well as reducing the cost of energy provisioning in supercomputing system - promoting a more sustainable supercomputing ecosystem. Pre-requisites: Knowledge of Fortran or C/C++. Elementary notions of Linux/Unix. Knowledge of computing architecture Experience in running HPC applications or systems Basic knowledge of parallel programming OpenMP and/or MPI    Grant The course is FREE of charge.

  • Parallel and Scalable Machine Learning @ JSC

    25 - 27 February 2019

    Parallel and Scalable Machine Learning @ JSC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/parallel-and-scalable-machine-learning-jsc-424a6e5f-64a6-471e-af99-5b940b60a8a4 The course offers basics of analyzing data with machine learning and data mining algorithms in order to understand foundations of learning from large quantities of data. This course is especially oriented towards beginners that have no previous knowledge of machine learning techniques. The course consists of general methods for data analysis in order to understand clustering, classification, and regression. This includes a thorough discussion of test datasets, training datasets, and validation datasets required to learn from data with a high accuracy. Easy application examples will foster the theoretical course elements that also will illustrate problems like overfitting followed by mechanisms such as validation and regularization that prevent such problems. The tutorial will start from a very simple application example in order to teach foundations like the role of features in data, linear separability, or decision boundaries for machine learning models. In particular this course will point to key challenges in analyzing large quantities of data sets (aka ‘big data’) in order to motivate the use of parallel and scalable machine learning algorithms that will be used in the course. The course targets specific challenges in analyzing large quantities of datasets that cannot be analyzed with traditional serial methods provided by tools such as R, SAS, or Matlab. This includes several challenges as part of the machine learning algorithms, the distribution of data, or the process of performing validation. The course will introduce selected solutions to overcome these challenges using parallel and scalable computing techniques based on the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and OpenMP that run on massively parallel High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms. The course ends with a more recent machine learning method known as deep learning that emerged as a promising disruptive approach, allowing knowledge discovery from large datasets in an unprecedented effectiveness and efficiency. Prerequisites: Knowledge on job submissions to large HPC machines using batch scripts, knowledge of mathematical basics in linear algebra helpful. Participants should bring their own notebooks (with an ssh-client). Learning outcome: After this course participants will have a general understanding how to approach data analysis problems in a systematic way. In particular this course will provide insights into key benefits of parallelization such as during the n-fold cross-validation process where significant speed-ups can be obtained compared to serial methods. Participants will also get a detailed understanding why and how parallelization provides benefits to a scalable data analyzing process using machine learning methods for big data and a general understanding for which problems deep learning algorithms are useful and how parallel and scalable computing is facilitating the learning process when facing big datasets. Participants will learn that deep learning can actually perform ‘feature learning’ that bears the potential to significantly speed-up data analysis processes that previously required much feature engineering. Application Applicants will be notified one month before the course starts, whether they are accepted for participitation.

  • Extracting biological information from gene lists

    1 March 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Extracting biological information from gene lists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication.

  • RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners

    4 March 2019

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-15076391-e5f2-4c5c-8ea3-5b925a66b8a3 High-throughput RNA-sequencing is now the standard technique for quantifying transcript abundance in a biological sample of interest. In this course we will describe the processes that take place once you submit a library for RNA sequencing, and what data you should expect to receive from the Bioinformatics Core. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a list of genes that show statistically significant differences between your biological conditions of interest. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control and assessing differential expression. We will also showcase some web sites you can use for enrichment and pathways analysis. 2019-03-04 09:30:00 UTC 2019-03-04 17:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    Data Carpentry https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-carpentry-workshop-5b2d17cb-f74b-4613-be3a-9cf0e744f1ab Data Carpentry workshops are for any researcher who has data they want to analyse, and no prior computational experience is required. This hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills, and tools for working more effectively with data. We will cover data organisation in spreadsheets, data cleaning, SQL, the command line, and R for data analysis and visualisation using examples from biology. Participants should bring their laptops and plan to actively participate. By the end of the workshop, learners should be able to more effectively manage and analyse data and apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research. Data Carpentry's aim is to teach researchers basic concepts, skills, and tools for working with data so that they can get more done in less time, and with less pain. 2019-03-05 09:00:00 UTC 2019-03-06 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
