The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre (formerly known as iVEC) is calling for applications from researchers to access time on the Petascale supercomputer - Magnus. If you are interested in using supercomputing resources for your research in 2015 - 2016, please consider applying. Researchers at CSIRO, Curtin, ECU, Murdoch and UWA can access the Partner Merit Allocation Scheme - with 58 million core hours available. Information about the call is available at https://www.ivec.org/applications-now-open-for-2015-mid-year-access-to-supercomputers/
The 2015 mid-year Merit Allocation calls are for the following schemes:
Geosciences Merit Allocation Scheme - supports geosciences-focused research projects from across Australia. There are 48 million core hours available in this call.
Pawsey Partner Merit Allocation Scheme - supports the whole range of computational research in Pawsey Partner institutions. There are 58 million core hours available in this call.
For this round, Pawsey will be piloting a pre-submission check for researchers who complete their applications by 16th April. Upon request, Pawsey supercomputing staff will check an application, highlighting any potential omissions or errors they identify, plus suggesting changes that may improve the technical assessment for the proposal. Project leaders who wish to take advantage of this pre-submission check, should email a request to [email protected]
in advance of 16th April, noting the URL of the application from the Pawsey Allocation Portal.
Pawsey will be running Merit Allocation workshops to provide support for those submitting applications. Workshop times and locations are:
- Tuesday 14th April, 2:00pm: Murdoch University
- Thursday 16th April, 10:00am: CSIRO, Kensington
Please register online for these workshops at https://www.ivec.org/event/merit-allocation-workshops-2015-mid-year/.
Limited places are also available for our introductory supercomputing training on 14-15 April. For more information and to register, please visit https://www.ivec.org/event/april-supercomputing-training/
