University of Puerto Rico - Medical Science Campus

You are invited to attend a comprehensive, in-person workshop hosted at the University of Puerto Rico. This workshop is designed for professionals and enthusiasts seeking to deepen their understanding of containerization in HPC systems.

The workshop will provide focused exploration of Apptainer on Bridges-2, offering participants an opportunity to gain practical insights and knowledge in this area.

Apptainer streamlines container creation and execution processes. This session will focus on practical applications, including:

- Deployment of legacy and developmental code
- Deployment of useful utilities using Anaconda
- Initiation of services
- Multi-layered builds
- Containerization and adherence to FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable)

This workshop is open to members of PR-INBRE Bioinformatics Community of Practice (BiCoP).

Who should attend? Faculty, research staff and students looking to learn more about containerization on Bridges-2.

Why should I attend? Faculty and research staff members stand to gain valuable insights by learning how containers enhance reproducibility within the framework of open science and the FAIR principles. Understanding containerization techniques empowers researchers to increase the credibility and impact of their work, facilitate collaboration, streamline research workflows, ensure research longevity, strengthen funding opportunities, and foster ongoing professional development. These skills not only contribute to individual research endeavors but also promote transparency, rigor, and efficiency within the broader scientific community.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
