The next HPC Café takes place on Tuesday, November 8, at 4 p.m. as a hybrid event (in person + Zoom). We invite you to come to RRZE’s seminar room 2.049 to have coffee and cake, and as always, there will also be plenty of time to get in touch with your favorite HPC group.

The monthly HPC Café is an opportunity to get to know each other and to stay up to speed with current developments at NHR@FAU. After a general Q&A phase, the focus will be put on advanced or application-specific topics. In the HPC Café we also offer short talks about anything HPC related, from running job scripts to performance issues. The Café is also an informal platform to give feedback or talk about general requests.

Time: Tuesday, November 8, at 4 p.m.

The event will start with the open coffee chat and Q&A. At 4:30 p.m., the presentation will start to allow remote attendees to join on time.

Location: RRZE (Martensstr. 1), seminar room 2.049 and Zoom online session (

Topic:   NHR@FAU General User Forum


NHR@FAU will host its first general user forum as a hybrid event. Also on board will be quite a few of the top users of compute time on the “Alex” and/or “Fritz” compute clusters at NHR@FAU over the last six months. For everyone’s benefit, we aim to foster a candid exchange among our users and with HPC staff – about the good, the bad, and the ugly. Therefore we would be pleased if our HPC customers use this opportunity to speak to us (and to each other) about their experience with the hardware, the software, the file systems, the support, or just about anything that has to do with their projects running on NHR@FAU infrastructure.
Unless the format is not prescribed at all, the main users will present –  speaking time is limited to five minutes per speaker – some slides about how NHR@FAU supports their science, they will furthermore pinpoint issues they have with their workflow or with the software/hardware environment. And last but not least everybody can ask specific questions to HPC staff. NHR@FAU colleagues will lead through the event.
