HPC School 2021
The third edition of the School of High-Performance Computing (HPC) is organized as part of the "Modelling & Simulation" strategic project.
The program of the School is organized so that students can participate based on their level of expertise and field of study.
About the School
The School will take place in Mesiano (Trento), in English, with conventional classes and "hands-on" sessions for 30 participants. Other participants will be allowed to take the course remotely.
More students may be admitted to the first two days, that will cover subjects that attract a wide interest.
30 August 2021
The focus of the first day of the School, which is also open to students with limited computer and calculation skills, will be on basic tools like Python for scientific programming, Git for version control, Bash and Make for scientific workflow automation.
This opening day lays the foundations for the work that will be done in the other days and gives an overview of HPC-related topics.
31 August 2021
The University's HPC cluster.
The goal is to provide the participants with the necessary knowledge to prepare and submit jobs, making the most of the potential of the cluster.
Teaching staff will pay special attention to the practical rules that help improve performance.
1 September 2021
Parallel computing with MPI.
The foundations of parallel programming, with a special focus on the solution of partial differential equations (PDE).
Students will work, In particular, on examples of method parallelization for implicit and explicit finite volumes, with applications to fluid and solid mechanics.
2 and 3 September 2021
Molecular Dynamics (MD) and Lammps simulations. The program will start with basic elements and simple simulations, and continue with insights on research topics, such as active and topological polymeric systems, and the automated management of multiple simulations in parallel to explore parameter spaces.
For more information on the program visit the dedicated page of the M&S - Modeling & Simulation website.
Registration information and the final program will be announced soon.
