ComBioMed Webinar #2: Introduction to cloud computing for the VPH

CompBioMed webinar#2_cover

The webinar is the second of a series that the CompBioMed Centre of Excellence is organising in collaboration with the VPH Institute. This webinar will be delivered by SURFsara (NL), the Dutch national high-performance computing and e-Science support centre, and the INSIGNEO group from the University of Sheffield (UK). 

The webinar will be on 30 Jan 2018 at 12 CET and will last 1 hour. Register for free here

In this webinar, we will show what a Cloud computing environment is and how it can help with your research. You will learn how to set up and access your virtual machine, as well as to install software and run your simulations. In particular, we will show how to configure and run openBF, a computational library written in Julia for blood flow simulations in straight elastic arteries developed by INSIGNEO, and how to visualize the output produced by the code.
