  • Deep learning in biology, autumn session

    30 September - 18 December 2020

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning in biology, autumn session https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-in-biology-autumn-session Large amounts of data and compute resources have enabled the development of high-performance machine learning models. This is particularly due to deep learning techniques. By looking at many data samples, these models can find structure in the data that is useful for predictive and explorative analysis: e.g. classification, clustering, data generation, dimensionality reduction, etc. The most popular applications within biotechnology are concerned with image segmentation, diagnostics, sequence analysis, etc. However, deep learning models are far from straightforward to implement correctly due to the many different hyperparameter settings, optimization procedures, architecture choices, etc. In this course, we will make use of Jupyter Notebok and Keras, which are both based on Python, to apply deep learning techniques on both bio informatics and bio image informatics data. We aim to work towards applications that participants would like to study. 2020-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []

  • [POSTPONED] Modern Scientific C++ @ MdlS/Idris

    5 - 8 October 2020

    [POSTPONED] Modern Scientific C++ @ MdlS/Idris https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/modern-scientific-c-mdls-idris In recent years, the C ++ language has evolved. To stick to the 1998/2003 standard is to miss many new features that make modern C ++ more robust, more powerful, and often more readable. Through this training, it is proposed to become familiar with syntactic novelties that facilitate the writing of code, modernized best practices to avoid the language traps, and a programming way that is easier to parallelize. This training is for scientific programmers who want to discover "modern" C ++ (2011 to 2020 standards), and adapt their programming practices accordingly. Detailed Program : Day 1 (Victor ALESSANDRINI) Review of some basic C++ concepts, overview of C++ as a software development environment, with two major software engineering strategies: object oriented programming and generic programming. Object oriented programming: the virtual function mechanism enabling late binding at execution time, (software modules calling newly written routines without recompilation). Examples of the power and relevance of virtual functions Function objects as extended pointers to functions, examples Introduction to generic programming: function templates, examples Day 2 (Victor ALESSANDRINI) Generic programming: class templates, examples The core of generic programming: using function and class templates to parameterize behavior rather than just object types Overview of the Standard Template Library (STL): strategies, containers, iterators, algorithms Concurrency in the standard C++ library: overview of the thread class, discussion of the new threading interfaces (futures, promises) enabling easy synchronization of simple concurrency patterns. Day 3 (David CHAMONT): modern C++ syntax Basic features: type inference, stronger typing, user-defined literals, uniform initialization, rvalue references, move semantics. Object features: member variables initialization, delegated and inherited constructors, explicit deletion and overriding of member functions. Generic features: static assertions, template variables and type aliasing, constant expressions, variadic templates, perfect forwarding.  Functional features: lambda functions. Day 4 (David CHAMONT): modern C++ library Basic tools: smart pointers (unique_ptr, shared_ptr), new collections (array, unordered maps), views (span, string_array), wrapper types (function, ref). Generic tools: type traits, sfinae, concepts. Functional tools: algebraic types (tuple, variant), monadic types (optional, future), ranges. Optimization and parallelization: beyond double, random numbers, chrono, execution policies, structures of arrays, co-routines. Prerequisites : Knowledge of classical (pre-11) C++ syntax, and basic experience in programming with C++ objects. Participants should be familiar with the following concepts: namespaces references, difference with pointers basic memory allocation (new and delete) Properties of C++ functions (default values, overloading) Basic understanding of error handling (exceptions) C++ classes, programming with objects, public derivation of classes Basic knowledge of templates https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/977/ 2020-10-05 07:30:00 UTC 2020-10-08 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Shared-memory programming with OpenMP @ EPCC Online

    6 - 15 October 2020

    Shared-memory programming with OpenMP @ EPCC Online https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/shared-memory-programming-with-openmp-epcc-online Outline Almost all modern computers now have a shared-memory architecture with multiple CPUs connected to the same physical memory, for example multicore laptops or large multi-processor compute servers. This course covers OpenMP, the industry standard for shared-memory programming, which enables serial programs to be parallelised easily using compiler directives. Users of desktop machines can use OpenMP on its own to improve program performance by running on multiple cores; users of parallel supercomputers can use OpenMP in conjunction with MPI to better exploit the shared-memory capabilities of the compute nodes. This course will cover an introduction to the fundamental concepts of the shared variables model, followed by the syntax and semantics of OpenMP and how it can be used to parallelise real programs. Hands-on practical programming exercises will be included, with access to HPC provided for the duration of the course. Pre-requisites This course is aim at attendees with prior experience of programming in C, C++ or Fortran. Some familiarity with HPC systems is helpful but not essential.  Learning outcomes At the end of the course, attendees should be equipped with the skills to write correct parallel programs using the core functionality of OpenMP, and understand the main issues affecting performance of shared memory parallel programs Timetable This course will be held over four 2-hour afternoon sessions: Tue 6th Oct 14:00 - 16:00 BST Thu 8th Oct 14:00 - 16:00 BST Tue 13th Oct 14:00 - 16:00 BST Thu 15th Oct 14:00 - 16:00 BST Full details Register https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1057/ 2020-10-06 13:00:00 UTC 2020-10-15 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
