As part of the ASA2016 program we will offer a High-Performance Computing (HPC) Support Room that will operate alongside the main program for part of the week. This will be staffed by HPC experts from NCRIS-funded national facilities such as NCI, Pawsey and Swinburne as well as the NeCTAR-funded All-Sky Virtual Observatory (ASVO). The service will allow ASA2016 attendees to drop-in and ask for advice/help on a range of HPC-related matters. We will also offer a range of tutorial sessions on specific topics.
The HPC room will be available:
- Monday, 4th of July, from 2pm to 4pm
- Tuesday, 5th of July, from 11.30am to 4pm
- Wednesday, 6th of July, from 10am to 4pm
Feel free to drop-in and ask questions during these times.
The following tutorials will operate in the HPC room:
- “How to use the All-Sky Virtual Observatory”, Monday 2-4pm;
- “HPC Resources for Astronomy (NCI/ASTAC)”, Tuesday 11.30am-12.30pm;
- “Introduction to Pawsey Services & Pawsey Workshop”, Wednesday 10am-4pm.
The HPC Room will be located in Learning Studio 4003, which is 1 level above the main entrance and the Messel LT where the plenary proceeding will take place.
