DelftBlue Supercomputer course - registration open



09:30 - 16:00 hrs


Delft: PC hall 11, room 2 (building 35, Cornelis Drebbelweg 5)


To give you a head start on this new and exciting facility, the Delft High-Performance Computing center (DHPC) organizes two-day workshops that introduce theoretical and practical aspects of using a supercomputer.

On both days, there will be plenty of time to get hands-on experience on DelftBlue, and experienced HPC users and developers will be available for questions and discussions.

Target audience: This course targets people who have never worked on an HPC cluster and want to get an understanding of how such a machine works and can be used in practice. To get the most out of the course, you should have basic skills in using the Linux command line and a programming language like Python, C, C++ or Fortran.

The course teachers are Jonas Thies and Dennis Palagin, and attending costs €50,- / day (incl. lunch and course materials, and free for DCSE members).

More information (and the link for registration) can be found on this DCSE page.

Delft High-Performance Computing center (DHPC):
Scientists increasingly need extensive computing power to solve complex problems in physics, mechanics and dynamics. Delft High Performance Computing Centre (DHPC) will deploy the infrastructure (hardware, software and staff) for TU Delft that is capable of complex analysis and modelling for researchers. At the same time we will provide Bachelor, Master and PhD students with hands-on experience using the tools they will need in their careers.

TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE):
Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is rapidly developing field that brings together applied mathematics, engineering and (social) science. DCSE is represented within all eight faculties of TU Delft. About forty research groups and more than three hundred faculty members are connected to, and actively involved in DCSE and its activities.
