11:30am  Pawsey Supercomputing Staff. Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services

12:30pm Q&A and networking session

 

Professor Jason Evans
Regional Climate Modelling: from process understanding to future projections

Regional climate models (RCMs) are tools to predict and understand the weather and climate at scales that are relevant for humans and capture the phenomena of interest. These tools can be used to improve our understanding of climate processes, including the evolution of weather/climate extremes, and to project the future impact of global warming at the regional scale. RCMs solve (numerically) the equations of motion for the atmosphere along with the interactions with radiation, thermodynamics of clouds and water vapour, land surface and ocean interactions – this requires a supercomputer. Here I present results of an investigation into the land surface/vegetation role in the evolution of the Millennium drought, examine the future changes in heat stress for Sydney as well as changes in extreme storms and the implications for infrastructure design, and show the climate changes projected for south-east Australia, over the 21st century using an ensemble regional climate projections.

Jason received degrees in mathematics and science from Newcastle University before completing a PhD at ANU in regional climate and hydrology. He spent 6 years as a research scientist at Yale University in the USA, before returning to UNSW where he is currently a Professor in the Climate Change Research Centre. He is co-Chair of the GEWEX Hydroclimate Panel and AustralAsia coordinator for the Coordinated Regional climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX), both elements of the World Climate Research Programme. He is an expert in the science of the climate system particularly in regards to land-atmosphere interactions, the water cycle and regional climate change.

Thursday 26th July 2018 at 9.30am AWST

Webinar Session (90 min)

  • Brief introduction to containers
  • Overview of container options at Pawsey
  • Example workflows and benchmarks using containers

 Who should attend?

Once the domain of enterprise and corporations, containers have emerged as a viable option for many workflows in the HPC space. Over the past year, Pawsey staff have been investigating and experimenting with different container solutions.  In this seminar we’ll discuss some preliminary findings, lessons learned, benchmarks, and a roadmap for how we envision containers being used at Pawsey.  We’ll also show some live demos of containers in action.

This webinar should be of particular interest to the following research areas and users:

  • Bioinformatics & Medical Researchers
  • R users
  • Python users
  • Radio Astronomy
  • Machine Learning
  • OpenFOAM users
  • Nimbus & Cloud Computing

Note registration closes on Wednesday 25th July at 4pm AWST.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is offering year 10 students the opportunity to discover the awe-inspiring nature of science, and how to become one of the experts that are accelerating innovation in Australia.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, in Kensington, is hosting its first Career Night Event on Thursday 26 July from 5:30 pm. The event aims to get Year 10 students in Perth excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics by hearing the experiences of researchers, industry representatives and Pawsey experts.

Year 10 students and their parents are encouraged to register for the event and join us for a series of presentations focusing on the career paths of some of our supercomputing and data analytics enthusiasts.  A quick tour of the Centre will follow, with the opportunity to see, up close and personal, Magnus, Pawsey’s flagship supercomputing system and one of the largest public research supercomputers in the southern hemisphere.

Attendees will be able to ask questions of presenters and other experts who will be available at the end of the session.

Some of the presenters are:

Alex Atkins Mining Engineer, Geologist, Geotech, MBA(Fin) Director The AusIMM 2016-2018, NED, Governance and Risk in Mining, Digital Transformation of Mining CRC Feasibility Study with Alternate Futures Pty Ltd in 2018

Marco De La Pierre – PhD in Materials Science (Turin, Italy). Marco spent almost seven years doing research in the academia, developing and applying computational methods to investigate the properties of minerals and materials at the atomistic level.  He has recently joined the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre as a supercomputing specialist.

Siobhon Egan – Bachelor of Science (Hons) Molecular biology – currently works at the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University. Siobhon’s research is centred on the One Health framework with a strong foundation in areas of ecology, parasitology, molecular biology and bioinformatics. Their PhD project is ‘Ecology of tick-borne diseases in Australia – A One Health approach’.

David Schibeci – Pawsey Head of Supercomputing – Bachelor of Science (Computer Science and Mathematics) with First Class Honours. David brings more than 10 years’ experience in high-performance computing and more than 20 years in systems administration, including Lead System Administrator for our first Top 500 supercomputer and first multi-teraflop supercomputer. This work included technically supporting iVEC’s first GPU cluster and being development champion for maali, the open-source build system.

One more time Pawsey is opening its doors on Friday to meet with its users.

If you are a Pawsey researcher or intern, come and join us for the first of many PAWSEY FRIDAYS, community events aimed at bringing together researchers and the staff that has been supporting them at Pawsey.

The next Pawsey Friday will take place on Friday 27 July, from 3pm at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.

The afternoon will provide an update on some of the projects run using Pawsey systems, but more importantly, the event will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting.

This Pawsey Friday our special guests are Assoc Prof Paolo Raiteri and Prof Julian Gale from Curtin University.

Professor Gale is leading a team of researchers to uncover the secrets of the formation of crystals from ions in water processes.

Biomineralisation is one of the most important processes for mineral formation in the natural world – taking place in everything from coral reefs to bones, teeth and kidney stones in the human body. One of the most widespread of these minerals is calcium carbonate. Despite being so prevalent, relatively little is known about the formation of such minerals. Professor Julian Gale from Curtin University is leading a team of researchers trying to uncover the secrets of these common but little-understood processes.

During this session, Prof Julian Gale and Paolo Raiteri will demonstrate how computer simulation, based on the dynamics of ions in solution, has been used to provide both valuable insights and quantitative data for such processes.

This will be followed by a presentation by David Schibeci, Pawsey Head of Supercomputing who will give updates on Pawsey’s latest activities. Joining him will be Dr Aidan Hotan, from CSIRO,  providing an update on the Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP)

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

Please RSVP for catering purposes by Monday 23 July.
