Last year, the first Genomics course was delivered, and Community Manager and FAIR coordinator, Evelyn Greeves, blogged about what we learned which included dividing the course into Prenomics and Genomics. Now Evelyn is back with another blog on how that went.
Do you need to analyse more genomic data than your own computer can handle? If you would like to use High Performance Computing for genomics but don't know where to start then the Cloud-SPAN Genomics Course is for you!

Two free Archer courses have been announced, running at EPCC in Edinburgh in early January 2020:
Submissions are requested for the first WHPC Summit, to be held at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada, on 29 April to 1 May, 2020.
The N8 CIR event on 17 October will see a full day of lectures and presentations from sector leaders on the challenges and benefits of performing High Performance and High Throughput Computing on a variety of cloud platforms.
The HPC user forum will be held in Edinburgh from 10–11 Oct 2019.

From 29 to 31 May 2018, PRACE will organise the fifth edition of its Scientific and Industrial Conference—PRACEdays18—under the motto "HPC for Innovation: when Science meets Industry" in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Software Sustainability Institute Fellow Edward Smith is organising an informal workshop on the 10th November, funded by the Software Sustainability Institute and hosted by Imperial College London (Sir Alexander Fleming Building SAFB 119), to bring together UK research software engineers for a discussion on Testing and Continuous Integration on High Performance Computing Platforms. This will include software engineers from UK institutions, including Imperial, Cambridge, UCL and SESC.

RCUK are conducting a survey to understand the skills and training needs of researchers using UK computational research resources, including traditional HPC for simulations and modelling to high throughput and data-intensive science applications. If your work is supported by a non-desktop system then this survey applies to you!

The data will be used to understand the range of skills across the UK HPC community, and the training needed to fill those skills gaps. The survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete and closes on 1st September 2017.
