Primary tabs

15th December 2022. 10:30 am. UPC's Vèrtex Building Auditorium + Gardens & Virtual

We are looking forward to celebrating the BSC staff annual meeting this year.

As in the previous edition, the event will be online and shorter.

The event will begin on December 15th at 10:30 am. We will send you a link nearer the time so you can connect.

Even more than normal, we hope that as many BSC staff as possible will be able to attend and participate.

You can participate by telling us:

What you would like to know about?

Let us know which subjects you find interesting to be incorporated into the BSC directors’ presentations.
Deadline exceeded

What would you like to listen to?

What you would like to share?

We would like to know more about your work, so we have booked one hour of the Annual Meeting to listen to 6 BSC employees that will explain what they do. We encourage you to be one of them.

What I would like to explain

Coming soon

 BSC Talks

We have booked time for 6 employees to explain in 6 minutes what you do at BSC.

The event will be VIRTUAL but the BSC Talks will be presented from the studio where the event is taking place.
 

We would like you to make short, attractive presentations (6 minutes) so all the BSC staff know what you do.

You could be one of those to go up the stage, and we will help you to prepare it.

What will you need to do?

  1. Let us know about what you would like to explain.
    • Send us a short video (landscape) of 45 seconds’ maximum explaining what you would like to present at annualmeeting2021@bsc.es
    • State your name, department, research group and a provisional title for your talk.
    • Deadline: November 29th.
  2. All the BSC staff will vote for the 6 most interesting proposals.
    • All videos will be available at the web page and the voting process will be open. Each employee will be able to vote up to 3 proposals.
  3. If your proposal is one of the chosen ones:
    • A training session will be organized for the 6 most voted.
  4. Prepare a 6 minutes’ presentation.
  5. The best presentation of December 15th will be awarded!

Directors’ presentation of 2022

We would like to know what subjects you are interested in so as to incorporate them in the directors’ presentation of the center. Fill in this form with your questions.

Objectives

The objective of this PATC course is to cover the basics of a high performance computing (HPC) environment oriented towards earth science applications, specifically chemical weather modelling and climate modelling.

More precisely, the course will cover:

  • Introduction to earth science fundamentals and modelling;
  • Basic usage of an HPC environment: shell, compilers, libraries, file systems, queuing system and parallel computing;
  • Build and configure targeted earth science applications with the NMMB/MONARCH chemical transport model and with the EC-EARTH climate model;
  • Execute and monitor numerical experiments using a workflow manager;
  • Analyse and visualise model outputs with a wide set of tools.

Learning outcomes: Participants will learn and gain experience in accessing an HPC facility, installing earth science numerical models and related utilities and libraries, running numerical simulations, monitoring the execution of supercomputing jobs, analysing and visualising model results.

Requirements

Prerequisites:
At least University degree in progress on Earth Sciences, Computer Sciences or related area

Basic knowledge of UNIX

Knowledge of C, FORTRAN, MPI or openMP is recommended

Knowledge of Earth Sciences data formats is recommended (grib, netcdf, hdf,…)

Knowledge of R and python

Please download and carefully read the following recommendations regarding the logistics that participants enrolling into the online PATC at BSC are expected to follow.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will learn and gain experience in accessing an HPC facility, installing earth science numerical models and related utilities and libraries, running numerical simulations, monitoring the execution of supercomputing jobs, analysing and visualising model results.
