Event/Course Description

A short introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) will be provided, followed by a hands-on session during which attendees will gain practical experience using the CyI HPC cluster, including logging on and navigating the filesystem, selecting their build environment, preparing and submitting jobs, and collecting the data generated. A brief introduction to GPU programming using CUDA will follow, including examples with solutions of simple exercises. The CUDA hands-on component requires some basic understanding of C or C++.
