11th EasyBuild Hackathon hosted at CSCS in Lugano

The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) is delighted to invite you to attend the 11th EasyBuild Hackathon, to be hosted on March 24 to 25, 2016 at CSCS, in Lugano, Switzerland.

EasyBuild is a software build and installation framework that allows you to manage (scientific) software on High Performance Computing (HPC) systems in an efficient way.

This event is dedicated to help new & expert users to get the most out of EasyBuild. The agenda will cover a basic introduction, an overview of the new features, the new Cray toolchains and the remaining time will be dedicated to hands-on activities.

Attendees are welcome (and advised) to bring their own set of applications and custom scientific workflows, so that we can integrate it to EasyBuild and discuss/implement missing features.

The event will start at 9:30 am on Thursday, March 24 as well as on Friday, March 25, 2016; and end at 5:00 pm on both days.

More details and updates will be available on the following link
