[N8CIR] Carpentry Workshop for Women in HPC and TEI Day Course

Dear colleagues

Please find below details of two incredibly useful computational resources for your research which are being offered by the N8.  If any University of Manchester academics or PGR students wish to enrol on these courses, please note that DH will be happy to cover your travel expenses (with the appropriate approval of the supervisor for PGR students).

Kind regards

Dr Guyda Armstrong

Faculty Academic Lead for Digital Humanities


  1. TEI day course:  

Registration is now open for our forthcoming Text Encoding Initiative workshop on the 9 of December.  The day has been changed due to the planned industrial action hence the delay in advertising this. The workshop will be led by the Digital Humanities Theme Lead from Newcastle, James Cummings.

For details and to book please go to:  https://n8cir.org.uk/events/tei-workshop/   There are very limited places available so we would encourage anyone interested to sign up quickly for the event.

  1. [N8CIR] High Performance Computing Carpentry Workshop for Women in HPC:

Taking place on Thursday and Friday 30 & 31 January, the two day course has been organised by Mozhgan Kabiri Chimeh of the University of Sheffield. It is being run in collaboration with Women in HPC and the Software Sustainability Institute with the goal of supporting and promoting women to develop the skills needed to use High Performance Computing (HPC) in their research.

The course introduces the basics of HPC and how it can benefit and accelerate research. After this introduction the course will focus on practical activities including remotely connecting to HPC systems and transferring data to them, using the Bash command line, using a scheduler and working effectively on a shared system and using software modules to access different HPC software.

Participants will need to bring a laptop computer with them to the course. Full details of the software requirements can be found via Eventbrite page.

Places on the course are FREE and lunch and refreshments are included. The course is primarily aimed at women and will be taught and supported by an all-woman team:

  • Mozhgan Kabiri Chimeh (University of Sheffield)
  • Anna Brown (University of Oxford, University of Southampton)
  • Fouzhan Hosseini (Numerical Algorithms Group)
  • Weronika Fillinger (EPCC)
  • Neelofar Banglawala (EPCC)

Until Friday 22 November registration is open exclusively to those working and studying at universities within the N8 Research Partnership. Full details of the course, including software and hardware requirements, can be found on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hpc-carpentry-workshop-2-days-tickets-80825839261
