Registration Now Open for Advanced Research Computing Boot Camps

October 15, 2023

UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC) is excited to announce our coming Research Computing Bootcamp 2023. This boot camp aims to introduce researchers to high-performance computing using UBC's ARC Sockeye platform, as well as educate current users on how to use the newly implemented Slurm job scheduler.   

This year's boot camp will only be held in-person.

The six-session boot camp, offered over three days, will provide researchers with hands-on experience on how to use Sockeye and for submitting and monitoring jobs. 

There is no obligation to attend each day or each session, but as the content of each session builds on the previous, it is expected that you have sufficient knowledge of the prior sessions' content. Individuals new to Sockeye or looking to refresh their knowledge of the system are recommended to attend the introductory sessions on day 1.  Additionally, the office hours on the last day of the Bootcamp are open to all Sockeye users, whether they are registered for the boot camp or not. 


  • Perfect for both new and current users 
  • Six sessions over three action-packed days 
  • Hands-on learning with HPC experts 
  • All disciplines and skill levels are welcome.
