Overview and Objectives

This half-day hackathon is aimed at helping sciCORE users to adapt their workflows to the new SLURM scheduler. Following a short introduction to Slurm, participants will be able to work on their own scripts with the support of the sciCORE team. Participants will be required to send us a short description of their workflows (with a copy of their scripts) and related issues regarding Slurm two weeks before the hackathon.

Participants must have a valid University of Basel email address and sciCORE account.


Participants should already have attended our introductory course on Linux/HPC and/or be confident working in a UNIX environment (eg UNIX fundamentals). Please come with your own laptop. We recommended Windows users to work with MobaXterm.
