ARCHER Training report Summer 2019
So, it's been another busy end to the academic year and summer training season for the ARCHER Training team.
Since June we have managed to cram in no less than twelve training courses, in locations from London to Leeds, and Oxford to EPCC here in Edinburgh.

The INTERTWinE project has spent a lot of effort addressing interoperability challenges raised by task-based models. By rethinking parallelism in the paradigm of tasks, one reduces synchronisation and decouples the management of parallelism from computation.
This is really attractive but existing models typically rely on shared memory, where the programmer expresses input and output dependencies of tasks based upon variables, which in turn limits the technology to a single memory space – often a node of an HPC machine. So to then scale up beyond a single memory space we must combine a task model with distributed memory technology, such as MPI or GASPI, and this has been a focus for a number of activities in INTERTWinE.

BioExcel is a newly launched Centre of Excellence that helps academic and industrial researchers to use high-performance computing and high-throughput computing in biomolecular research.
We are running a number of events in September and October and I would be very grateful to anybody who circulates these to people or groups that may be interested (and bonus points if you are willing to share with me details of where/to whom you publicise so that we can reduce cross-posting).
