Conference LUMI Day Poland 2024

On February 29th, 2024, from 10.00 to 14.00 (CEST, GMT+2), an online conference is organized to present the LUMI supercomputer with its possibilities and resource application process.

The LUMI supercomputer, build by a consortium of 10 countries, including Poland, currently places 5 at the TOP500 list of world’s most powerful computer systems.
More information on Polish activities under LUMI can be found here.
Polish scientists have access to LUMI via national PLGrid Infrastructure.

The program includes:
● LUMI’s place in the EuroHPC JU initiative,
● Scientific challenges that can be answered thanks to LUMI
● How to apply for LUMI resources
● LUMI user support
● Software in a pre-exascale environment
● LUMI use cases
● EuroCC – National Competence Centres EuroHPC
● EPICURE project.

Details, schedule and registration link can be found here.

Poland End to End LLM Bootcamp

We would like to invite you to the Poland End to End LLM Bootcamp organised from 5-7 March 2024 by the Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH in cooperation with PLGrid Infrastructure, Polish National Competence Centre in HPC, and  NVIDIA company.

This bootcamp is designed to give NLP researchers an end-to-end overview on the fundamentals of NVIDIA NeMo framework, complete solution for building large language models. It will also have hands-on exercises complimented by tutorials, code snippets, and presentations to help researchers kick-start with NeMo LLM Service and Guardrails.

A detailed programme for the event and an application form (deadline 14 February 2024) can be found here.

Come to the conference and discover the WRO4digITal project offer for entrepreneurs.

Are you running a business in Lower Silesia? Do you need support in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), high performance computing (HPC), cybersecurity, or free expert services? Get to know the WRO4digITal project, one of its partners is Wrocław University of Science and Technology, including Wrocław Centre for Networking and Supercomputing, which is part of National Competence Centre in HPC.

Take part in the inaugural conference of the WRO4digITal project. The W offer is aimed at SMEs, including microenterprises and startups, as well as public administration, such as local government units and schools. The W activities are carried out regionally in Lower Silesia, but the project also has an international dimension within the pan-European network of digital innovation centres.

Wrocław Centre for Networking and Supercomputing, as part of the tasks in the project, is responsible for implementing the following services:
• Specialised training: Cybersecurity solutions – How to design and maintain them;
• Audit of IT infrastructure and software security;
• analysis of company processes to select digital solutions for data processing;
• Individual plans for digital transformation in the field of cloud services, computing, and data management;
• pilot implementation of cloud services, computing, and data management;
• Support for the implementation of the digital transformation plan in the field of cloud services, computing, and data management.

Recruitment for a second degree in computational engineering is underway at the ICM

Do you want to become a specialist in computational engineering? If so, read this carefully. The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling UW is currently recruiting for a second-degree full-time programme in this field.

There is a growing demand for the use of computer simulations in various scientific, economic, and business domains. Therefore, there is a need for specialists in computer modelling. The study programmeme lasts for three semesters and focusses on the application of scientific computations, including those that use large-scale systems, to solve advanced scientific and technical problems. Graduates of computational engineering will have fundamental knowledge of large-scale systems, including topics such as large-scale architecture, management of large-scale systems, and the utilization of large-scale systems in selected domains.

Supercomputers User Conference – Invitation to Zakopane

You are invited to the Supercomputers Users Conference, which will take place in Zakopane from March 13th to 15th, 2024.

Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH is organising this event for the 16th time. It is an opportunity for users who perform high-performance computing and software simulations using the powerful computers and software provided by Cyfronet to exchange experiences.
The conference theme revolves around large-scale computations and simulations, new algorithms in computer science, tools and techniques in high-performance computing systems, as well as the applications of computer science in education and databases.

Regional workshop of national competence centres in HPC in Krakow

Representatives from national competence centres in HPC from Poland, Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Slovenia gathered in Krakow for regional workshops as part of project EuroCC2.

Representatives from Hungary also joined remotely.
During the group sessions, the discussions focused on competencies, training, mentoring, and sustainable development. There was also a session dedicated to collaboration, both with industry, small and medium companies, the scientific community, and administration, as well as among competence centres from different countries. Participants also worked on issues related to communication and disseminating knowledge about supercomputers and large-scale computing.

Thank you for the meeting, the very interesting, sometimes lively discussions, sharing cand exchanging experiences. It was a very productive day for the national competence centres in HPC in central Europe.
