Login (pre-assignement)

The pre-assigment for the OpenMP course is to login to vsc4.

We do that to not loose precious time during the course and to make sure that we do have your correct mobile phone number which is needed for the two-factor authentication enforced with login to all VSC systems.

 

Please see the two emails that were sent on 30 November 2023 (17:30 – 18:30) to all registered participants:
