Introduction to the LRZ Supercomputing & Machine Learning Infrastructure

Date: Monday, October 08, 2018, 9:00-18:00
Location: LRZ Building, Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, LRZ Hörsaal

In this introductory course we will give an overview of the hardware and software services provided by the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ) with a focus on supercomputing (HPC) as well as machine learning (ML) applications.
The course opens with a (optional) introduction to GNU/Linux and a how-to of working with remote machines. The subsequent combination of lectures, demo and hands-on sessions provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently utilize the LRZ supercomputing and cloud infrastructure for their own projects.
