The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is excited to welcome its newest staff member, Paws-E the quokka. Paws-E is taking over the role of Pawsey Supercomputing Centre mascot from his cousin, Happy Cheeks.
Happy Cheeks debuted as Pawsey’s mascot at SC13 in Denver, where he accompanied Australia’s first Student Cluster Competition team. He was very well received by international audiences, and returned at SC14 in November last year.
Happy Cheeks emigrated to the United States in 2014 accompanying Rebecca Hartman-Baker, who previously managed Pawsey’s Student Cluster Competition teams. Rebecca has returned to the United States to work at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), and Happy Cheeks continues to represent Australia and Pawsey proudly in his new home.
Paws-E will make his international debut at ISC’15 in Frankfurt from July 12-16, where he and other Pawsey Supercomputing Centre staff will represent the Centre and Australia on the international stage.
More details on Paws-E and the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre’s appearance at ISC’15 will be made available closer to the date.
