Learn more about supercomputing during Open HPC Week from 5th to 9th of July

Supercomputing or High-performance computing (HPC) is used world wide to performe high-volume calculations and various simulations much faster than a personal computer. For example, running HPC simulations before the start of the production process can significantly save resources by finding the best solutions for raw materials or processes in advance.

Open HPC week is organized remotely via Zoom and will offer a wide-range of topics, through which representativs of various industries, scientists and anyone else interested can learn more about the services HPC can provide.

Event programme:

  • HPC day, 7th of July – introduction the basic priciples of HPC, hands-on section with problem-solving, both via command lines and in an interactive graphical environment. Introduction to the High Data Rate Network in Latvia (GDN) with hands-on testing of the data transfer process;
  • Open Source day, 9th of July – an overview of open source software. Technological and environmental process modelling. Simulation of wind flows. Machine learning tasks with Google Collab/Python;
  • Consultations with experts, 5th – 9th of July – Consultations with experts regarding HPC.

Available consultations during Open HPC week: Technical aspects of HPC applications, HPC services and infrastructure, bioinformatics/genomics, weather modelling and climate data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning, modelling in construction, connecting to the high performance data network, computation in chemistry / drug development, computational fluid dynamics, as well as technological process modelling.
