    Elixir node event
    HPC and NIRD toolkit user course HPC and NIRD toolkit user course November 2021 In November 2021, the Norwegian Research Infrastructure Services NRIS (formerly known as the Metacenter) partners Sigma2, UiB, UiO & UiT are jointly offering a hands-on course for current and future users of national HPC systems (Saga, Fram, Betzy) and the NIRD Toolkit. The course is open to all users and free of charge. For individual sessions we list recommended prerequisites. The participants can choose which session they want to attend and you’re certainly welcome to just attend all sessions you are interested in. On each course day, we will start at 09:00 and conclude at around 13:00. Each “morning” will include presentations and hands-on time on one of the actual HPC systems or the NIRD Toolkit. We recommend that participants use the afternoon on each day to repeat examples from the morning to get more experience on the systems. Practical Information This is an online course via zoom. Participants require access to a computer (not provided by the course organisers) with internet connectivity and pre-installed programs to participate in the video meeting of the course (zoom, might work from a browser), to access the HPC systems (e.g., ssh or Putty), to transfer data to/from an HPC system (e.g., scp or WinSCP) and to access the NIRD Toolkit (web browser). Note Those who do not have an account on one of the HPC machines or NIRD (storage, Toolkit, …) yet need to apply for an account. The application page is available here and documentation for the application procedure is available here. You are applying for an HPC account.
