Network Know-how and Data Handling Workshop https://dresa.org.au/materials/network-know-how-and-data-handling-workshop This workshop is a ‘train-the-trainer’ session that covers topics such as jargon busting, network literacy and data movement solutions. The workshop will also provide a peek at some collaborative research tools such as Jupyter Notebooks and CloudStor. You will learn about networks, integrated tools, data and storage and where all these things fit in the researcher’s toolkit. This workshop is targeted at staff who would like to be more confident in giving advice to researchers about the options available to them. It is especially tailored for those with little to no technical knowledge and includes a hands-on component, using basic programming commands, but requires no previous knowledge of programming.

Porting the multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort https://dresa.org.au/materials/porting-the-multi-gpu-self-fluids-code-to-hipfort In this presentation by Dr. Joseph Schoonover of Fluid Numerics LLC, Joe shares their experience with the porting process for SELF-Fluids from multi-GPU CUDA-Fortran to multi-GPU HIPFort. The presentation covers the design principles and roadmap for SELF and the strategy to port from Nvidia-only platforms to AMD & Nvidia GPUs. Also discussed are the hurdles encountered along the way and considerations for developing multi-GPU accelerated applications in Fortran. SELF is an object-oriented Fortran library that supports the implementation of Spectral Element Methods for solving partial differential equations. SELF-Fluids is an implementation of SELF that solves the compressible Navier Stokes equations on CPU only and GPU accelerated compute platforms using the Discontinuous Galerkin Spectral Element Method. The SELF API is designed based on the assumption that SEM developers and researchers need to be able to implement derivatives in 1-D and divergence, gradient, and curl in 2-D and 3-D on scalar, vector, and tensor functions using spectral collocation, continuous Galerkin, and discontinuous Galerkin spectral element methods. The presentation discussion is placed in context of the Exascale era, where we're faced with a zoo of available compute hardware. Because of this, SELF routines provide support for GPU acceleration through AMD’s HIP and support for multi-core, multi-node, and multi-GPU platforms with MPI. training@pawsey.org.au AMD, GPUs, supercomputer, supercomputing

Embracing new solutions for in-situ visualisation https://dresa.org.au/materials/embracing-new-solutions-for-in-situ-visualisation This PPT was used by Jean Favre, senior visualisation software engineer at CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre during his presentation at P'Con '21 (Pawsey's first PaCER Conference). This material discusses the upcoming release of ParaView v5.10, a leading scientific visualisation application. In this release ParaView consolidates its implementation of the Catalyst API, a specification developed for simulations and scientific data producers to analyse and visualise data in situ. The material reviews some of the terminology and issues of different in-situ visualisation scenarios, then reviews early Data Adaptors for tight-coupling of simulations and visualisation solutions. This is followed by an introduction of Conduit, an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data. Both ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent use Conduit’s Mesh Blueprint, a set of conventions to describe computational simulation meshes. Finally, the materials present CSCS’ early experience in adopting ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent via two concrete examples of instrumentation of some proxy numerical applications. training@pawsey.org.au ParaView, GPUs, supercomputer, supercomputing, visualisation, data visualisation

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing https://dresa.org.au/materials/deep-learning-for-natural-language-processing This workshop is designed to be instructor led and consists of two parts. Part 1 consists of a lecture-demo about text processing and a hands-on session for attendees to learn how to clean a dataset. Part 2 consists of a lecture introducing Recurrent Neural Networks and a hands-on session for attendees to train their own RNN. The Powerpoints contain the lecture slides, while the Jupyter notebooks (.ipynb) contain the hands-on coding exercises. This workshop introduces natural language as data for deep learning. We discuss various techniques and software packages (e.g. python strings, RegEx, NLTK, Word2Vec) that help us convert, clean, and formalise text data “in the wild” for use in a deep learning model. We then explore the training and testing of a Recurrent Neural Network on the data to complete a real world task. We will be using TensorFlow v2 for this purpose. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, NLP, Machine learning

Visualisation and Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/materials/visualisation-and-storytelling This workshop explores how data visualisation techniques could be utilised to better understand data and to communicate research efforts and outcomes. The workshop covers a broad range of techniques from simple and static 2D graphics to advanced 3D visualisations in order to provide a broad overview of the tools available for data analysis, presentation and storytelling. We explore, among others, animated charts and graphs, web visualisation tools such as scrollytellers, and the possibilities of 3D, interactive, and even immersive visualisations. We use real world, concrete examples along the way in order to tangibly illustrate how these visualisations can be created and how viewers perceive and interact with them. We also introduce the various tools and skill sets you would need to be proficient at presenting your data to the world. By the conclusion of this workshop, you would gain familiarity with the various possibilities for presenting your own research data and outcomes. You would have a more intuitive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various modes of data visualisation and storytelling, and would have a starting point to obtain the right skill sets relevant to developing your visualisations of choice. datascienceplatform@monash.edu data visualisation, storytelling

Semi-Supervised Deep Learning https://dresa.org.au/materials/semi-supervised-deep-learning Modern deep neural networks require large amounts of labelled data to train. Obtaining the required labelled data is often an expensive and time consuming process. Semi-supervised deep learning involves the use of various creative techniques to train deep neural networks on partially labelled data. If successful, it allows better training of a model despite the limited amount of labelled data available. This workshop is designed to be instructor led and covers various semi-supervised learning techniques available in the literature. The workshop consists of a lecture introducing at a high level a selection of techniques that are suitable for semi-supervised deep learning. We discuss how these techniques can be implemented and the underlying assumptions they require. The lecture is followed by a hands-on session where attendees implement a semi-supervised learning technique to train a neural network. We observe and discuss the changing performance and behaviour of the network as varying degrees of labelled and unlabelled data is provided to the network during training. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, Machine learning, semi-supervised

WEBINAR: Getting started with command line bioinformatics https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-getting-started-with-command-line-bioinformatics This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Getting started with command line bioinformatics’. This webinar took place on 22 June 2021. Bioinformatics skills are in demand like never before and biologists are stepping up to the challenge of learning to analyse large and ever growing datasets. Learning how to use the command line can open up many options for data analysis but getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in computer science. Parice Brandies and Carolyn Hogg have recently put together ten simple rules for getting started with command-line bioinformatics to help biologists begin their computational journeys. In this webinar Parice walks you through their hints and tips for getting started with the command line. She covers topics like learning tech speak, evaluating your data and workflows, assessing computational requirements, computing options, the basics of software installation, curating and testing scripts, a bit of bash and keeping good records. The webinar will be followed by a short Q&A session. The slides were created by Parice Brandies and are based on the publication ‘Ten simple rules for getting started with command-line bioinformatics’ (https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1008645).
