The GWDG aims to support forest-related research with its high-performance computing (HPC) cluster. Therefore, the first online workshop Forests in HPC is organized on 13.12.2022 from 09:00 to 14:00.
During the first part of the workshop, two hands-on tutorials will be provided to demonstrate the utilization of HPCs. After that, we would like to have an open discussion about emerging topics in your field of research and how HPCs can help to overcome limitations (topics such as big data analysis, scalable AI, data management, ...).
Participants of this workshop will get temporary accounts for the HPC system, which they can use to explore our HPC further after the workshop.
The hands-on tutorials briefly introduce how to use the HPC system for an earth observation analysis in the context of forests. The first part of this will demonstrate an R-based workflow on the example of the lidR-Package. Here we will talk about setting up the environment for the analysis and running jobs with SLURM. The second part will demonstrate an example of deep learning with Python. Here we will also show how to request appropriate hardware with SLURM, such as GPU-Nodes.
This workshop is open to all researchers in Germany.
We especially invite researchers from the NHR , the Max Planck Society, University of Göttingen. However, everyone with interest in HPC and Forests is welcome.
Requirements: basic programming skills (preferably in R or Python).

This workshop is supported by the NHR  and the ForestCARE  project.
We look forward to your participation.
