HUST-21: 8th International Workshop on HPC User Support Tools
Event Type
TimeFriday, 19 November 20218:30am - 12pm CST
DescriptionSupercomputing centres exist to drive scientific discovery by supporting
researchers in computational science fields. To improve the productivity of the
user and the usability of systems in an environment as complex in a typical HPC
centre they employ specialised support teams and individuals. The broad support
effort ranges from basic system administration to managing 100's of Petabytes
with complex hierarchal data-storage systems, to supporting high performance
networks, or consulting on advanced math libraries, code optimisation, and
managing complex HPC software stacks. Often, support teams struggle to
adequately support scientists as HPC environments are extremely complex
and combined with additional layers of complexity of hierarchical data storage,
multiple networks, hybrid hardware configuration, and maintaining complicated
research software stacks to support 100's or even 1000's of HPC users can be
extremely demanding.
