The next HPC Café takes place on Tuesday, December 13, 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, December 13, 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:   Using the Zenodo document and data repository  (guest talk by Dr. Jürgen Rohrwild, FAU UB)

Abstract: Zenodo is a European, free-of-charge document and data repository. With its relatively accessible metadata model, it provides a low-threshold solution for a broad range of scientific datasets. Some potentially desirable features include dedicated Zenodo communities, GitHub integration, and versioning. Zenodo’s generic nature also comes with some trade-offs such as limited metadata fields and no collaborative elements. This short presentation will have a closer look at Zenodo’s features and limits.
