Life Science PhD Meeting

Life Science PhD Meeting

Summary of the 2023 Life Science PhD meeting.

Please write to if you have any questions.

The abstract submission Deadline is extended to 03.02.2023. Please beware that we have limited space for talks, so only the best abstracts will be granted a talk. If you are not selected for a talk, you will automatically get a poster.

Poster format is A0 (or smaller) in portrait format.

Short talk duration is 12 min + 3 min discussion.

If you are interested in the “High Performance Computing” workshop organized by the Human Brain Project, you can register with the same link.

We like to thank our sponsors that enabled us to make this meeting free of charge and are looking forward to see many of you at the Life Science PhD Meeting Innsbruck 2023!

Introduction to High Performance Computing

Nowadays, sciences, such as astrophysics, climatology, neuroscience or deep learning, often employ models and simulations that require a lot of compute resources to provide useful results. These simulations cannot be scaled on local computers, like laptops or workstations, as they consume too much compute time and power as well as memory and storage. High performance computing (HPC) systems provide an infrastructure to solve these issues. Simulations which run on HPC systems are able to take advantage of the powerful compute processors and the massively parallel architecture.

This workshop introduces state-of-the-art of high performance computing (HPC) to scientists who have little or no background in working with supercomputers and compute clusters.

By the end of this workshop, the participants will:
· know what an HPC system is and how it differs from a regular computer
· understand how an HPC system can help to solve problems
· how to submit and manage jobs on an HPC system using a scheduler, transfer files, and use software through modules and installation in a virtual environment.
· understand different types of nodes, storage partitions and other compute architectures.
