  • Or maybe you have been using a supercomputer already, but would like to make sure your are getting the most out of it?

→ This course is intended for you!

In this course we will learn the basics of geocomputing on a supercomputer through a combination of lectures and hands-on activities. The main focus of the course is CSC Puhti supercomputer, were all hands-on exercises will be done. The CSC services discussed in this course are free-of-charge for academic research, education and training purposes for Finnish higher education institutions and state research institutes (subsidized by the Ministry of Education and Culture, Finland).

Most of the course content also applies to EuroHPC JU LUMI supercomputer, which is available for academic users and companies.

The course is meant both for academic researchers planning to use Puhti supercomputer and for data analysts from private companies planning to use LUMI.

This course is organized by CSC - IT Center for Science and funded by Geoportti Research Infrastructure and the Location Innvation Hub.
