The following presentation “How we work with users in a small environment” was given by Patrik Burkhalter (Empa) at the hpc-ch Forum on Hardware Life-Cycle and User Policies for HPC systems, October 23th 2013, hosted by EPF Lausanne / University of Lausanne / Vital-IT.
Il CSCS ha ospitato lo scorso 11 marzo una conferenza pubblica tenuta da Richard Walker dedicata a “Capire il cervello attraverso la simulazione“. Questa conferenza fa parte, insieme ad altri interessanti incontri, della Settimana del Cervello della Svizzera Italiana. Lo Human Brain Project (HBP), coordinato dall’EPFL di Losanna, con la collaborazione di 80 partner, è […]
Since the end of last year, Switzerland has boasted the most powerful supercomputer in Europe: “Piz Daint”. As of today, it is officially cleared for research. For the approval, “early science” has already been conducted successfully on “Piz Daint” over the last few weeks. Today (21 March 2014), Fritz Schiesser, the president of the ETH […]
Major duties and responsibilities: Help optimize codes used at EPFL for sequential efficiency, parallelization, scaling, algorithms. Enable new applications on modern parallel architectures, with a focus on Materials Science: Maintain materials science HPC applications at a state-of-the-art level. Develop and maintain highly parallelized codes that are or have the potential to become community codes, with […]
Major duties and responsibilities: Bridge the gap between the HPC systems and the researchers. Participate to HPC coursesand outreach. Support the preparation of production project proposals, such as national computing allocation projects at CSCS or DOE Incite. Help users in the migration from workstation to compute cluster and from compute cluster to high-end infrastructure. Help […]
