LCI workshops provide education and advanced technical training for the deployment and use of computing clusters to the high performance computing community. Workshops are provided each year at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels, offering a range of concepts, technologies, and hands-on skills for Linux system administrators. Workshop levels and locations vary each year. Visit for information on upcoming workshops.

This free online course will introduce you to what supercomputers are, how they are used and how we can exploit their full computational potential to make scientific breakthroughs.

Over five weeks, we’ll look at:
Supercomputers: introducing supercomputing terminology and some of the largest machines in the world.

Parallel Computers: how they are built from hundreds of thousands of CPUs, each similar to those in a desktop PC.

Parallel Computing: using parallel processing to harness the power of all of those CPUs for a single calculation.

Computer Simulation: how we can perform virtual experiments to make real-life predictions.

Case Studies: how supercomputing is making scientific breakthroughs that were never possible before.

HPC Carpentry teaches basic skills for high-performance computing. HPC Carpentry is a set of teaching materials designed to help new users take advantage of high-performance computing systems. No prior computational experience is required. These lessons are ideal for either an in-person workshop or independent study.

The UK National Supercomputing Service ARCHER provides a capability resource to allow researchers to run simulations and calculations that require large numbers of processing cores working in a tightly-coupled, parallel fashion.

ARCHER courses are free to all academics. Much of the ARCHER training material is available online.
