Poland Open Hackathon

We would like to invite you to the “Poland Open Hackathon” organized on July 9-18, 2024 by the Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH in cooperation with PLGrid Infrastructure, Polish National Competence Centre in HPC, and NVIDIA.

The goal of the Open Hackathon is for computational scientists to port, accelerate, and optimize their scientific applications to modern computer architectures, including CPUs, GPUs, and other computing technologies. Participating teams should leave the event either with their applications accelerated and/or optimized on the latest supercomputing hardware or with a clear roadmap of the next steps needed to leverage these resources.

This hackathon is open to everyone looking to take their projects to the next level; however, priority acceptance will be given to PLGrid-affiliated scientists and their collaborators. We highly encourage users from the industry level and public administration to participate in this event.

More details about the event and the registration form (deadline: May 01, 2024) can be found HERE.

Poland N-Ways to GPU Programming Bootcamp

We would like to invite you to the “N-Ways to GPU Programming” workshop organized on June 5-7, 2024 by the Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH in cooperation with PLGrid Infrastructure, Polish National Competence Centre in HPC, and NVIDIA.

The bootcamp covers the basics of GPU programming and provides an overview of different methods for porting scientific applications to GPUs using NVIDIA® CUDA®, OpenACC, standard languages, OpenMP offloading. Throughout the bootcamp, attendees with learn how to analyze GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA Nsight™ Systems and participate in hands-on activities to apply these learned skills to real-world problems.

The detailed program of the event and the registration form (deadline: May 15, 2024) can be found here.

Access to the fastest supercomputer in Europe

Another competition for access to CPU and GPU resources on the LUMI supercomputer, aimed at Polish researchers, has been launched.

The competition is run by ACK Cyfronet AGH. Allocation of LUMI grants will be carried out through the PLGrid Portal. Applications will be accepted in English only.

Maximum metric values of requested resources:
• CPU: 20 000 000 CPUh
• GPU: 1 000 000 GPUh
• Storage: 10 000 000 TBh.

Competition schedule:
1.03–31.03.2024 – Applications acceptance
until 6.05.2024 – Competition results announcements
until 20.05.2024 – Acceptance of the amount of the allocated resources
until 27.05.2024 – Access to the LUMI supercomputer for the chosen projects.
