Welcome to this month’s newsletter for the research software community at The University of Sheffield, featuring news, opportunities, events and training for you.
14 September 2022 - 09:00-17:00
Recent advances in deep neural networks coupled with an increasing amount and complexity of scientific data collected in a wide array of domains provide many exciting opportunities for deep learning applications in scientific settings. Furthermore, libraries such as Google’s Tensorflow python library have made building deep learning models more accessible through common tools, freely available to researchers.
In this course, we’ll introduce some basic neural network and deep learning theory and give participants practical experience in some popular deep learning models and techniques.
Research IT is providing a place for beginners or advanced users to expand their knowledge of HPC and different programming languages. The courses are part of the Doctoral Development Programme. For more information please visit our training registration web page (via VPN): https://crs.shef.ac.uk.
This highly popular workshop will run again in September, October and November. Join the RSE mailing list to be the first to get the details.
LunchBytes are organised by and for the research software community at The University of Sheffield. If you’d like to curate a session on a topic or present something, get in touch by emailing email@example.com - Or suggest topics on the jamboard.
Why not come to a Code Clinic? We’re keen to hear from you.
Code Clinics are fortnightly supported sessions run by the RSE team and IT Services’ Research and Innovation IT (ITS R&I) team. They are open to anyone at TUoS writing code for research to get help with programming problems and general advice on best practices.
At each session, members of the RSE and/or ITS R&I teams will be available to review code, advise, troubleshoot, and suggest ways to improve your computational workflows.
HPC Drop-In sessions are providing assistance with HPC related user issues such as challenges in scaling an application from desktop to supercomputer. We are considering extending the number of our sessions to two or three weekly. These interactive sessions could provide a better interface with our users than our non-interactive ticketing system. These sessions are advertised on the HPC mailing list.
Alongside the HPC Drop-In sessions, Research IT are also running one to one consultations to solve in depth user specific problems. These consultations can be booked via our webpage. If you are interested please visit the following link: https://students.sheffield.ac.uk/it-services/research/support.
The Sheffield RSE Team aims to collaborate with you to help improve your research software.
They can provide dedicated staff to ensure that you can deliver excellent research software engineering on your research projects.
The Research and Innovation Team within IT directly supports research, both academic and commercial. We provide large scale HPC systems, advice on everything from statistics to ML to data pipelines and training for both students and staff. Working with academics, our staff are embedded within research groups on both long and short term engagements.
