This introductory course is designed to help the users seamlessly migrate from the PBS scheduler to this newly installed job management system. The course describes the SLURM fundamental concepts, its job submission process, terminology, and environment variables.
National competence centrE portfolio
A quality portfolio of services and market monitoring are crucial aspects of the National Competence Centres' cooperation with the industry
This was one of the outcomes of the half-day workshop of the National Competence Centres in HPC (NCC), which was held on 12th June and immediately preceded the 9th annual Austrian-Slovenian HPC Meeting.
The 9th Austrian-Slovenian HPC Meeting (ASHPC 2023) was held in Maribor, Slovenia, on 13–15 June. The programme also included a presentation titled "NCC Czech Republic, Entrance to the World of HPC" by Tomáš Karásek, the Czech NCC Coordinator.
The most significant science popularisation event in the Czech Republic, the Science Fair, has already passed. This year's seventh edition, traditionally held at the PVO EXPO Praha exhibition centre in Letňany in Prague (8th - 10th June), broke not only records in the number of visitors. Indeed, we couldn't miss out on it.
This two-part hands-on workshop will introduce you to parallel computing with MATLAB so that you can solve computationally and data-intensive problems using multicore processors, GPUs, and computer clusters. The course will be delivered in hybrid mode. You can attend the course at IT4Innovations in Ostrava or online.
Modern deep learning challenges leverage increasingly larger datasets and more complex models. As a result, significant computational power is required to train models effectively and efficiently. Learning to distribute data across multiple GPUs during training makes possible an incredible wealth of new applications that utilize deep learning.
The National Competence Centers in HPC of Turkey and the Czech Republic are inviting you to the jointly developed training.
In this course, participants learn the building blocks of transformer architectures to apply them to their projects. These novel methods will be differentiated against existing methods, showing their advantages and disadvantages.
Quantum computers are based on a completely different principle than classical computers. This course aims to explain this difference by showing how basic quantum computing algorithms work in practice. It is focused on the theoretical foundations, mathematical description and practical testing of the resulting quantum circuits.
The most significant scientific popularisation event in the Czech Republic, the Science Fair, is coming soon! Take a trip, bring your kids, and immerse yourself in the secrets of science and supercomputers. The event will be held at the VPVA EXPO PRAHA exhibition centre in Letňany in Prague from 8th to 10th June.
Europe's most important event in high-performance computing, ISC 2023, is already over. The National Competence Centre in HPC (NCC) presented its achievements so far, including successful collaborations with companies and other stakeholders in the field, and introduced the conference participants to current opportunities for collaboration with industry, public administration, and academia.
The workshop is targeting specifically code developers and will be focused on code optimisation. Participants are encouraged to bring their own codes to learn about techniques, methods and solutions on how to improve them both in terms of performance and in terms of scalability across multiple platforms.
Lectures, panel discussions, and project presentations. Over five hundred representatives from the field of HPC attended the EuroHPC Summit in Göteborg, Sweden (20-23 March). On the last day of the event, a workshop of Centres of Excellence and National Competence Centres (NCCs) was held, where the coordinator of the Czech NCC, Tomáš Karásek from IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center, was also present.
Industrial companies and public administration have another opportunity to take full advantage of HPC
The National Competence Centre for HPC celebrates two years of existence in the Czech Republic. During this time, it has helped many companies and public institutions by providing access to supercomputers, technology consulting, and free educational activities. It intends to build on its earlier achievements in the next three-year period of its operation.
This course is focused on data analysis and modeling in R statistical programming language. The first day of the course will introduce how to approach a new dataset to better understand the data and its features. The second day is focused on increasing the efficiency of computation by introducing Rcpp for seamless integration of C++ code into R code.
The Procedural Scene Creation in Blender will take place at IT4Innovations and online on 29 – 30 March 2023.
At the beginning of December, we organised the AI and simulation-based engineering workshop, which took place at the Grandior Hotel in Prague. Our invitation accepted experts from leading European research institutions who presented talks about artificial intelligence and simulations in engineering.
The Applications of AI for Anomaly Detection workshop will take place at IT4Innovations and online on 1 March 2023.
