The ALICE Supercluster at Leiden University stands as a powerhouse of computational resources tailored to empower researchers at Leiden. As scholars continue to explore the intersections of language, culture, and history through data-driven approaches, ALICE offers an essential platform for accelerating research and analysis.

Understanding SLURM: Simplifying High-Performance Computing

At the heart of ALICE's functionality lies SLURM (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) – a powerful workload manager that efficiently allocates computing resources to user tasks.

Whether you're analyzing large corpora of texts, simulating historical scenarios, or processing multimedia data, SLURM helps streamline your research workflow by effectively managing job scheduling and resource allocation. 

This workshop, designed with humanities researchers in mind, serves as a compass to navigate the realms of ALICE and SLURM. Through hands-on examples and practical exercises, participants will gain the confidence to harness the ALICE Supercluster's immense computational power for their research inquiries. By equipping scholars with essential skills, this workshop empowers humanities researchers to embark on a transformative journey, where data-driven insights illuminate the past and reshape the future of their academic pursuits.
