Today, HPC forms part of the essential research infrastructure at the Imperial College. The computational infrastructure consists of a hierarchy of hardware systems where each level can run larger simulations or more sophisticated models than the one below.
Institutional HPC services play a key role in bridging the gap between research group workstations at the bottom and national/international facilities at the top.
The course will provide participants with a hands-on introduction to the HPC systems at the College. After an introductory part, participants will log into the cx1 system for guided exercises.
