Support for Preparing your Supercomputing Merit Allocation Application
September 30, 2015 @ 1:30 am - October 1, 2015 @ 4:30 pm
Calls are currently open to apply for supercomputing time at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in 2016. If you are interested in using supercomputing resources for your research in 2016, please consider applying. You can apply for access to the Magnus supercomputer through the following calls:
- National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS)
- Energy and Resources Merit Allocation Scheme
- Pawsey Partner Merit Allocation Scheme
Information about the calls are available at https://www.pawsey.org.au/2015/09/allocations2016/
Pawsey will be running Merit Allocation workshops to provide support for those submitting applications. It can be difficult to estimate a full year’s supercomputer use – but we’re here to help you!
Workshop times and locations are:
- Wednesday 30th September, 3:00pm: Room 312.222, Curtin University
- Wednesday 30th September, 1:30pm: SS1.035, Murdoch University
- Thursday 1st October, 9:00am, Physics G11, The University of Western Australia
- Thursday 1st October, 3:00pm: Training Pod B, 20 Dick Perry Ave, Kensington (ARRC/CSIRO)
You are welcome to attend any of these sessions. Please register for these workshops using the online form (below). Slides used in the sessions are available here.
If you require access to Magnus while preparing your application (to test and/or benchmark software), please request this through the Pawsey helpdesk by 28th September.
As additional support for applicants, Pawsey will be providing a pre-submission check for researchers who complete their applications early. 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@example.com in advance of 2nd October, noting the URL of the application from the Pawsey Allocation Portal or attaching a PDF of the review page of the NCMAS application.
For assistance with your application or for any other enquiries, please contact the Pawsey Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
