High Performance Computing for Demographers

February 15, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PST

Presenters:

Edward Moss 

Assistant Director for Computing Services

California Center for Population Research

Mike Tzen 

Assistant Director for Statistics and Methods Services

Data analysis of large and highly complex datasets is extremely resource intensive, and inadequate computing resources can cause data analysis to slow to a crawl if it’s even able to be performed at all. Remotely accessing a high performance computing platform provides access to analysis resources that likely far exceed those of your personal computer. CCPR currently recommends two options for remote high performance computing

  • TS1 – CCPR managed Windows based system including Stata, SAS, and ArcGIS
  • Hoffman2 – Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) managed Linux based system including Rstudio, Stata and MATLAB

We will provide background descriptions, access walkthrough, and analysis demonstration for each service.

Before attending the workshop, please make sure you have an account on hoffman2 and CCPR’s TS1. Contact emoss @ ccpr.ucla.edu if you need assistance.
