The 6th bwHPC symposium will be held on September 30th, 2019 in Karlsruhe. Its focus is on scientific projects carried out with the help of high performance computing resources supplied within the framework of the bwHPC initiative of the state of Baden-Württemberg. The symposium is free of charge and open to researchers from all scientific fields. Participation from outside Baden-Württemberg is explicitly encouraged.

To present the achievements of the bwHPC initiative to the funding bodies it is important that as many bwHPC users as possible from Baden-Württemberg participate in 6th bwHPC Symposium on 30 September 2019 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Furthermore, this one-day event is the ideal opportunity to get in contact with the operator teams and other users.

In order to allow us to plan the symposium in time, please register as soon as possible just as a participant. Optionally, you can later choose other forms of participation (abstract, lecture, poster), but today is simply about your participation.

Participation in the event is free of charge and open to scientists of all disciplines.

For registration, submission of contributions and further details as well as deadlines,
please visit the following website:

We would appreciate your participation in the conference.

NEMO Maintenance on 27.08.2019

NEMO will be down for maintenance on 27.08.2019 (Tuesday) from 08:00 to 18:00 (CEST).

Add event to calendar vCal

The downtime will also be announced in the "Message of the Day" at login time and on our website http://www.hpc.uni-freiburg.de.

The downtime is required for an upgrade of the MOAB scheduling system so we can properly support the new GPU nodes.

We will use the downtime to apply other pending software upgrades to NEMO.

Job scheduling will be suspended during the maintenance. Login and access to your files cannot be guaranteed during the maintenance.

Reboots of the login nodes can happen at any time during the maintenance without further notice.

You can submit jobs until the downtime starts (27.08.2019, 08:00 AM). The maintenance will be finished at 18:00, possibly earlier.

Please note that jobs projected to finish after the downtime starts will be blocked.

Queued jobs will begin to start automatically after the maintenance is finished.

Due to the nature of the maintenance (upgrade of the scheduler), correct behaviour of the scheduling queue cannot be guaranteed.

If you cannot cope well with lost or cancelled jobs, we suggest you wait with job submissions until the maintenance is finished.

Best wishes,
Your HPC Team

The bwHPC symposium focuses on the presentation of scientific computing projects as well as on the progress and the success stories of the bwHPC initiative. The event offers a unique opportunity to engage in an active dialog between scientists using high performance compute resources, operators of bwHPC sites, and the bwHPC-C5 support centers.

Registration
