Loss of connectivity today

Due to loss of power in the Laboratory Complex server room (not the HPC Lab’s server room), connectivity to Nestum was lost for a period of about 5 hours (9AM to 2PM). The machine itself was not affected, but users were unable to log to their accounts.

We apologize for the inconvenience

HPC course – second edition – 24 September 2020

За втора година екипът на Лабораторията по високопроизводителни изчисления организира  обучение, свързано с използване на клъстер за високопроизводителни пресмятания (HPC).
Лектор ще бъде д-р Христо Илиев – експерт с голям опит в областта на Big Data и HPC (RWTH Aachen University, Germany 2011-2018;
2019-2020 Chief Data Scientist at holler.live, Amsterdam, Netherlands).

Планираме интензивно обучение за един работен ден -24 септември 2020 – ще има лекции, съпроводени с упражнения,
като ще ползваме MOODLE или друга електронна платформа.

Главни теми на обучението:

1. Отдалечен достъп до високопроизводителни изчислителни системи
2. Запознаване със системата за управление на разпределени ресурси (с други думи “с какво работата на споделен изчислителен клъстер се различава от работата на личното PC”)
3. Преглед на методите за програмиране на разпределени системи

Ниво на участниците – базови познания по Linux или друга Unix-подобна ОС (macOS, *BSD).

Добре би било да могат да редактират текстови файлове в конзолата с редактори като vim, Emacs, nano. Познания по програмиране на C или Python.

Моля,  разпространeте тази информация сред колегите, техните студенти, докторанти,
като заявки за включване в обучението да се изпращат до:

Стефка Близнева Stefka Blizneva <blizneva@fmi.uni-sofia.bg>

Ани Пройкова Ana Proykova <anap@phys.uni-sofia.bg>

Христо Илиев Hristo Iliev <hristo@hiliev.eu>

Срок за записване: до 17 септември 2020.        На записаните ще бъде изпратена подробна информация за начален час, платформа и изисквания.

С уважение,
проф. дфзн Ани Пройкова

Manifesto for EU COVID-19 Research

The Commission has launched a Manifesto today to maximise the accessibility of research results in the fight against Covid-19. The Manifesto provides guiding principles for beneficiaries of EU research grants for coronavirus prevention, testing, treatment and vaccination to ensure that their research results will be accessible for all and guarantee a return on public investment.

European Commission – Green Deal Online Event

The EU’s goal of being carbon neutral by 2050 is under threat. The Covid-19 outbreak has forced EU member states to suspend business-as-usual and to focus on the immediate crisis, with the consequence that medium to longer term investment planning and goals relating to decarbonisation face an uncertain future. You can register for the free online event by clicking the image below.
