EUDAT offers a complete set of research data services to all European scientists and researchers, enabling them to preserve, find, access, and process data in a trusted environment.
In this webinar Dr David Henty will give a brief overview of ARCHER, the UK national High Performance Computing (HPC) service, what it is used for and how it is programmed. I will also introduce EPCC's one-year Masters courses in HPC and Data Science which teach all the techniques required to use parallel supercomputers.
Places at this year's Software Sustainability Institute's Collaborations Workshop are quickly running out so if you would like to attend this event you should register soon.
EPCC offers access to ARCHER, the UK National Supercomputer, through calls for proposals to the regular UoE Supercomputing Panel.
Closing date for proposals: 4pm, 14 April 2015.
Applicants can request significant amounts (>1,000 ARCHER kAU, equivalent to >500,000 CPUh) of computing resource over a maximum 1-year period. Applications to the UoE Supercomputing Call can be for research in any discipline. Applications from communities that are not traditional users of large amounts of high-performance computing (HPC) resource are particularly encouraged. EPCC provides expert support for all projects using ARCHER.
The aim of this call is to provide access to a national state-of-the-art high performance computing facility for proposals of high scientific quality from within the University of Edinburgh.
The agenda for our annual collaboration workshop between the University of Edinburgh and the University of Tsukuba has now been finalised.
The meeting, which will be held in Edinburgh on the 9th and 10th of March, brings together researchers from Edinburgh and Tsukuba universities to present and discuss cutting-edge research in high-performance computing, computer science, and physics being undertaken by both institutions.
The workshop is open to all, so please come along and find out more about the projects being worked on and the results achieved.
A second call for proposals aimed at SMEs wishing to trial high-performance computing (HPC) has been launched by SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe).
SHAPE is a pan-European programme supported by the PRACE project. The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by HPC, thus increasing their competitiveness. The programme allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.
