CompBioMed Webinar #4

Introduction to Biomedical Applications on High Performance Computers

This webinar introduces the fundamental concepts and basic tools of HPC environments, and includes an application example of flowing red blood cells in a vessel section. It is divided into two major sections: the first part, presented by Dr Gavin Pringle (EPCC), presents a high-level overview of HPC along with practical examples. The second part, presented by Dr Gábor Závodszky (UvA), showcases the usage of an open-source HPC code (, which is built to simulate blood flows on the level of single cells. The whole talk forms a coherent unit providing a brief guide that takes you from the conceptual basics of HPC computing to an actual application. Registration will open soon.
