Another Matlab workshop is likely to be held this Spring semester but has not been scheduled yet.


Introduction to HPC

About

This training course will help you get started on using HPC resources.  If you have recently started, you might learn there is a better way, or there are capabilities you are not taking advantage of.  You can stick around and use this as a consulting session.

Dates and Registration

The UITS building is at the corner of Mountain and Speedway.  The entrance is at the east end of the building and the room 130A is downstairs

DateTimeLocation
Wednesday November 10, 20219:00-10:00amRoom 130A UITS Building
Wednesday December 1, 20219:00-10:00amRoom 130A UITS Building

To register, send an email to hpc-consult@list.arizona.edu with your name, NetID, and Department/School.

Introduction to Machine Learning

About

This short training class provides a brief introduction to key concepts of machine learning.  The short lecture will be followed by two hands-on examples that emphasize running a Jupyter notebook on the HPC supercomputers. You can stick around and use this as a consulting session.

Introduction to Parallel Computing

Thanks to Lawrence Livermore Labs for this tutorial




Introduction to OpenMP


This PDF file is a presentation from a series called Xsede * HPC Workshop.

* XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.



Singularity


Overview

Singularity containers let users run applications in a Linux environment of their choosing.  This is different from Docker which is not appropriate for HPC due to security concerns.  Singularity is like a container for Docker images, but is not just for Docker.  

The most important thing to know is that you create the singularity container called an image on a workstation where you have root privileges, and then transfer the image to HPC where you can execute the image. If root authority is an issue then the answer might be a virtual environmen t on your laptop, like Vagrant for MacOS

For an overview and more detailed information refer to:
Singularity Quick Start

Here are some of the use cases we support using Singularity:

  • You already use Docker and want to run your jobs on HPC
  • You want to preserve your environment so that a system change will not affect your work
  • You need newer or different libraries than are offered on HPC systems
  • Someone else developed the workflow using a different version of linux
  • You prefer to use something other than Red Hat / CentOS, like Ubuntu 

We have some local tutorials for Singularity
