CANCELLED - Introduction to High Performance Computing Workshop


Did you know that students and faculty at FSU have access to a very powerful research compute cluster?

This workshop will cover the basics of using the High Performance Computing cluster (HPC) to run computing jobs. It is a great introduction for users new to the HPC or those who wish to brush up on current best-practices and workflows for using the HPC at FSU.

Specifically, this workshop will cover:

  • How the HPC works
  • What the Slurm Scheduler is and how to use it
  • Slurm job submission and job management commands
  • How to run compute jobs on the HPC

How to Prepare

This is an interactive, hands-on workshop.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer if you are able to so that you can follow along during the presentation.

Before the workshop begins, be sure that you have installed an SSH client on your computer.  If you have a Mac or Linux computer, an SSH client is already built into the operating system.  If you have a Windows computer, refer to our instructions for how to setup an SSH client.

If you want, you can sign-up for an RCC account on our website.  However, this is not necessary.  If you do not have an account already, we will provide you a temporary account to use on our system during the workshop.


This workshop is led by Paul van der Mark, RCC Director. Dr. van der Mark has been at the HPC/RCC since 2007, and has extensive experience in high performance computing.


This workshop will occur in Dirac Science Library Room 499 in the Department of Scientific Computing.  Enter the main entrance of Dirac Science Library, and immediately turn left before entering the library.  Take the elvator to the 4th floor.  Once on the 4th floor, walk straight ahead until you reach the large Seminar Room (499).
