Special guests from the Desert Fireball Network

The next Pawsey Friday will take place on Friday 03 February 2017, from 3pm at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.

The afternoon will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting, while finding out more about researchers’ experiences with Pawsey systems and their outcomes.

This Pawsey Friday our special guest is The Desert Fireball Network from Curtin University.

The Desert Fireball Network (DFN) are researchers who use innovative methodology and supercomputing to track fireballs as they shoot across the Australian desert night sky. The project is led by Professor Phil Bland, ARC Laureate Fellow from Curtin University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering.

The DFN project uses cameras to capture the falling meteorites. Using the world-class infrastructure at Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, the DFN team stores vast amounts of data and models the behaviour of the meteoroids travelling at hypersonic speeds in the atmosphere. The research team can then calculate where a meteorite falls to retrieve, analyse, and trace it back to the parent body in the solar system from where it came.

This is your opportunity to come and find out about their experience catching “shooting stars”.

It will be followed by a brief presentation from David Schibeci about Pawsey presence at SC16, the international supercomputing event that took place in Salt Lake City late last year.

A sundowner session will also take place where a selection of drinks and snacks will be available.

Please RSVP for catering purposes.

Should you have any questions regarding the event, please contact pr@pawsey.org.au.

More information can be found on the Events Calendar on the Pawsey website.

Hobart researchers

We’re coming to YOU… for one day only…

On February 9th 2017, the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is hitting the road again! Pawsey is coming to Hobart to meet with and help researchers take their projects to the next level.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is a state-of-the-art high-performance computing facility representing Australia’s commitment to the solution of Big Science problems. The facility provides researchers across Australia with access to the most powerful public research computer in the Southern Hemisphere, and it is focused on providing integrated research solutions through world-class expertise and infrastructure in supercomputing, data, and visualisation.

The Roadshow is an event showcasing services and resources that Pawsey provides to researchers across Australia. If you have a project that can benefit from supercomputing, book an appointment for a Pawsey Roadshow workplace visit.

This free event will have staff from Pawsey representing the organisation and answering questions from researchers who would like to take advantage of HPC and related services.

If you are a researcher who is interested in high-performance computing, or if you want to see if your work can be taken to the next level by using powerful computing resources, we welcome you to book an appointment with Pawsey staff. We will be visiting the IMAS and CSIRO facilities on Castray Esplanade.

Pawsey experts will discuss how potential users can gain access to supercomputing, data or visualisation systems and how they can benefit from the expertise of Pawsey staff in transitioning their research. We are also interested in your views on how Pawsey might look in the future.  Hence if you would like to discuss with us your future computing requirements, as we progress to 2020, please also come and talk to us.

Appointments are very limited. 

For more information feel free to contact us through help@pawsey.org.au

To book an appointment send an email to mark.gray@pawsey.org.au with your details

Please share the information with your colleagues if you think they can benefit from this event.

Cost: Free

Program

  • 10.30am Welcome by Pawsey staff
  • 10.35am Past and Future Temperature Extremes and Vegetation in Western Australia project Dr Jatin Kala

The south-west of Western Australia is a region of significant agricultural production as well as a biodiversity hotspot. This talk will showcase the use of PAWSEY resources to assess the impacts of future climate change on cereal crop production, viticulture, and bushfire weather in the region.

  • 10.55am Fundamental Understanding of the Role of Singlet Molecular Oxygen in Spontaneous fires. Dr Mohammednoor Altarawneh

Some chemical reactions can occur spontaneously at room temperature, leading to self-heating, ignition and fires that result in loss of life and significant damage to Australian industries. This project will identify these chemical reactions and will develop new technologies to interrupt them to avoid spontaneous fires. It will provide fundamental understanding of the reactions between electronically excited species of oxygen and Carbonaceous fuels, with applications to improved safety in wood, mineral and food industries.

  • 11.15am Pawsey Supercomputing Staff. Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services
  • 11.45am Q&A and networking session
