  • Introduction to Nextflow for Data Intensive Pipelines

    25 August 2021

    Kensington, Australia

    Introduction to Nextflow for Data Intensive Pipelines https://staging.dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-nextflow-for-data-intensive-pipelines * Does your research require the setup of complex workflows to analyse ever growing amounts of data? * Do you find it time consuming to write and maintain your computational pipelines, and to deploy them on different infrastructures? * Has prototyping, testing and deploying your containerised workflow led to code repetition - making your workflow readable only to you? Finally, what if you could use a framework to create quick prototypes by simply swapping configurations – enabling you to run the same workflow locally using Docker or on HPC using Slurm and Singularity. Would you be interested in learning more? Nextflow is such a framework. Popular within the bioinformatics community, Nextflow can be used in any data intensive research domain, including planetary sciences, space sciences, radio astronomy, oceanography, geological sciences, and more. In this session, we’ll present a use case in planetary science. The purpose of this event is to provide mostly, but not exclusively, HPC users with an overview on how to develop new and redevelop existing workflows using not only Nextflow but also industry accepted best practices, including code modularity and reuse, rapid prototyping and deployment, and platform independence. We will use a real use case of development and redevelopment of an HPC-focused workflow. Practical issues that commonly arise in such a project will be discussed. Join us to learn more: • Dr. Marco De La Pierre will present an overview and the fundamental concepts of the Nextflow framework. • Mr. Kosta Servis will present his experience with Nextflow to refactor an existing bash/Docker/Singularity workflow. • We’ll include a short presentation of the Crater Detection Algorithm workflow structure, the main goals and project history from black box magic to bash scripts to Nextflow. • There will be a simple walkthrough using a basic example. • We’ll close with your questions and an opportunity for you to share your experiences. NOTE: This event is planned as a hybrid event. Choose your attendance preference during registration: • In-person: For individuals located in Perth, you are invited to join us onsite at the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre. The Centre has attendance limits; please only register for in-person if you plan to attend. • Online: For individuals who will not join in-person at Pawsey, we will livestream the event.

    Brisbane, Australia

    Introduction to Unix https://staging.dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-unix The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including “high-performance computing” supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2021-08-30 09:00:00 UTC 2021-08-30 17:00:00 UTC QCIF The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia The University of Queensland Brisbane Australia 4072 The University of QueenslandQCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] Researchers looking to automate processes or use ‘command line’ research software, including using high performance and parallel computing facilities 20 workshop host_institution []

Despite their high ecological and socio-economic significance, there is often a lack of knowledge on the long-term dynamics of intermittent coastal inlets such as those found at intermittently open and closed lakes and lagoons (ICOLLs) or barrier islands. Australia alone is home to 305 (21%) of the 1477 globally mapped ICOLLs and for many of them, there are no long-term records of their time-evolving entrance state, which represents a challenge for coastal managers and decision-makers. 2021-09-02 13:00:00 UTC 2021-09-02 14:00:00 UTC Australian Space Data Analysis Facility WebEx, Australia WebEx Australia Australian Space Data Analysis Facility Mortaza Rezae [] researchers webinar open_to_all []

  • Introduction to Nextflow for Data Intensive Pipelines

    25 August 2021

    Kensington, Australia

    Introduction to Nextflow for Data Intensive Pipelines https://staging.dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-nextflow-for-data-intensive-pipelines * Does your research require the setup of complex workflows to analyse ever growing amounts of data? * Do you find it time consuming to write and maintain your computational pipelines, and to deploy them on different infrastructures? * Has prototyping, testing and deploying your containerised workflow led to code repetition - making your workflow readable only to you? Finally, what if you could use a framework to create quick prototypes by simply swapping configurations – enabling you to run the same workflow locally using Docker or on HPC using Slurm and Singularity. Would you be interested in learning more? Nextflow is such a framework. Popular within the bioinformatics community, Nextflow can be used in any data intensive research domain, including planetary sciences, space sciences, radio astronomy, oceanography, geological sciences, and more. In this session, we’ll present a use case in planetary science. The purpose of this event is to provide mostly, but not exclusively, HPC users with an overview on how to develop new and redevelop existing workflows using not only Nextflow but also industry accepted best practices, including code modularity and reuse, rapid prototyping and deployment, and platform independence. We will use a real use case of development and redevelopment of an HPC-focused workflow. Practical issues that commonly arise in such a project will be discussed. Join us to learn more: • Dr. Marco De La Pierre will present an overview and the fundamental concepts of the Nextflow framework. • Mr. Kosta Servis will present his experience with Nextflow to refactor an existing bash/Docker/Singularity workflow. • We’ll include a short presentation of the Crater Detection Algorithm workflow structure, the main goals and project history from black box magic to bash scripts to Nextflow. • There will be a simple walkthrough using a basic example. • We’ll close with your questions and an opportunity for you to share your experiences. NOTE: This event is planned as a hybrid event. Choose your attendance preference during registration: • In-person: For individuals located in Perth, you are invited to join us onsite at the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre. The Centre has attendance limits; please only register for in-person if you plan to attend. • Online: For individuals who will not join in-person at Pawsey, we will livestream the event.

    Brisbane, Australia

    Introduction to Unix https://staging.dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-unix The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including “high-performance computing” supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2021-08-30 09:00:00 UTC 2021-08-30 17:00:00 UTC QCIF The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia The University of Queensland Brisbane Australia 4072 The University of QueenslandQCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] Researchers looking to automate processes or use ‘command line’ research software, including using high performance and parallel computing facilities 20 workshop host_institution []

Despite their high ecological and socio-economic significance, there is often a lack of knowledge on the long-term dynamics of intermittent coastal inlets such as those found at intermittently open and closed lakes and lagoons (ICOLLs) or barrier islands. Australia alone is home to 305 (21%) of the 1477 globally mapped ICOLLs and for many of them, there are no long-term records of their time-evolving entrance state, which represents a challenge for coastal managers and decision-makers. 2021-09-02 13:00:00 UTC 2021-09-02 14:00:00 UTC Australian Space Data Analysis Facility WebEx, Australia WebEx Australia Australian Space Data Analysis Facility Mortaza Rezae [] researchers webinar open_to_all []
