Workshop: Efficient usage of HPC for deep learning

A hands-on workshop on how to harness the power of high-performance computing (HPC) clusters for efficient deep learning training. This workshop is designed for PhD students with an interest in leveraging HPC resources to accelerate their machine learning research.

Description: The workshop will explore the intricacies of harnessing High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems for machine learning applications, focusing on the adept utilization of SLURM-managed clusters. Participants will delve into the nuances of efficiently training deep neural models using multiple GPUs and compute nodes. Through a blend of theoretical foundations and practical demonstrations, attendees will acquire the skills needed to optimize machine learning model training on HPC clusters. This session is tailored to offer insights for researchers and PhD students seeking to elevate their machine learning capabilities within an HPC framework.

Workflow: The workshop is scheduled for a virtual session via Zoom. Attendees will gain access to the supercomputer cluster through SSH.
