Scientific Computing Workshop (11-12 June)

The Norwegian Research Infrastructure Services (NRIS) is offering a scientific computing workshop, two half days event focusing on two different topics.

  1. Using NetCDF data format with Modern Fortran

Unidata Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) is a set of libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. The workshop will focus on netCDF file structure, compiliing and linkiing and how to read and write netCDF files with modern Fortran

  1. Profiling and optimising software applications on HPC

Running scientific application in order to maximise the efficiency of the hardware is increasingly important as the core count increase. There are several steps with increasing complexity that can be taken to learn more about the application’s behaviour.

The course is open to all and free of charge, but registration is mandatory.

Targeted Audience: The course is aimed at students and researchers who want to upskill their knowledge on the specific topics.

Prerequisites: For better learning experience, participants are expected to have basic programmiing knowledge on C/Fortran for day 1 and basic HPC knowledge for day2.

Practical Information

  • This is an online course via zoom. Participants require access to a computer (not provided by the course organisers) with internet connectivity.

  • There will not be any hands-on session, but demos. Participants are encouraged to practice themselves after the event.
