The University of Cambridge with the support of the Software Sustainability Institute is organising a workshop on Containers for HPC: A Workshop on Singularity and Containers in HPC and Cloud on 29th and 30th June 2017. The aim of the workshop is to give an overview of container technologies in the context of Research Computing, with a specific focus on enabling HPC and GPU workloads.
The main focus will be around Singularity which is available in the current HPC system at Cambridge and is also the chosen technology that will be implemented in the new Cambridge Service for Data Driven Discovery at Cambridge (CSD3). Alongside a few special keynote talks, an afternoon session will cover practical examples from running a container on HPC to building your own Singularity container images.
Further information and registration is available at Containers for HPC workshop website. Places are limited, please make sure you have a real interest and need of this container technology and you are also familiar with Linux environments.
