Having initiated and coordinated this event since 2014, I am quite proud to reach the 11th edition of the High Performance Computing (HPC) School which is scheduled for Nov 12-19, 2021.

   11th UL HPC School

Since the Aion supercomputer is opened for beta-testing since Jul 30, 2021 (and in production release since Oct 3, 2021), the objective of the proposed practical sessions is to focus on Aion. Also, this edition was free of charge and opened to ALL UL partners (incl. externals).

We have prepared a very complete and diverse program aiming at guiding the attendees in this complex ecosystem at half-day frequency (to give you time to digest morning sessions). Indeed, there is no real way to claim experience in HPC, HPDA and/or AI without practising, running jobs and program on a real High Performance Computing platform - those who pretend expertise or leadership in these fields without these ingredients is just lying to you :)

At the occasion of this new edition and outside a set of practical sessions, I have given my traditional keynote to offer an updated view of the UL HPC platform, its usage and its future.

As for the previous editions, I would like to express my deep appreciation and heartfelt thanks to the contributors who used to accompagny me in setting up and conducting this 11th edition.
