A two day introductory course for researchers and PhD students who have never used high performance computing before or have had only limited exposure.

High performance computing (HPC) is a powerful tool to use when facing computationally-intensive tasks. If you are waiting hours or days for your computer to crunch through your data, this course is for you. It will enable you to use the HPC facilities available to the university through its support agencies such as Intersect and NCI.

This course assumes only basic Windows competence and will teach participants how to interact via the command line, move data between different locations and prepare and run it through the HPC facilities. It will be delivered in a small group workshop including presentations and hands-on exercises with tutors.
