Current and upcoming events

Date Text
2022-08-23 Introduction seminar for Alvis users. In this online seminar we will show you how to use Alvis. Zoom meeting will be at 13:15-17:00 here. The second part of this seminar will be an optional workshop where users can go through a tutorial with help available and on reserved nodes on Alvis. To get access to the reserved resources you need to request membership to project SNIC 2021/7-120 two days before the seminar at the latest. If you are going to participate in the workshop you should either be connected through SUNET or use a VPN with which you can connect to Alvis.
