BEAR Training

Advanced Research Computing provides a variety of workshops and short courses to help researchers at the University develop their IT skills and make the most of technology available to them for their research. BEAR Necessities provides both a general introduction to high performance computing and using our HPC system BlueBEAR. Introduction to Linux (for using BlueBEAR) gives attendees an overview of Linux commands that facilitate work on BEAR Linux systems. 

The BEAR Carpentries Workshops teach skills that are immediately useful for researchers, using lessons and datasets that allow researchers to quickly apply what they’ve learned to their own work and become more efficient. The AI and Deep Learning workshops introduce the concepts and get researchers started on using AI and Deep Leaning.

We provide links to some externally provided training and there are also special interest user groups that bring people together with common interests in research areas. If more information is required then please contact
