High-Performance Computing and Virtual Research Environments for Data Processing and Analysis

About the Event

Microscopy Australia is organising a two-half-day masterclass on the use of high-performance computing (HPC) and virtual research environments (VREs, also referred to as virtual laboratories), available to the Australian research community for data processing and data analysis.

The masterclass will include an introduction to HPC (including cloud computing) and VREs, and describe capabilities available in Australia. Data transfer will also be covered (available tools, network performance measurements). Experts from various organisations, including ARDC Nectar Research Cloud, the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), the Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF), The University of Queensland, AARNet, and the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, will present their services and answer questions from the audience.

The masterclass will be run online on Monday 5 December (HPC) and Tuesday 6 December (VREs). You are welcome to register for just one or both workshops.

ARDC Speakers at the Masterclass:

Sonia Ramza, Cloud Skills Specialist – An Introduction to Cloud Computing

Andy Botting, Technical Lead – ARDC Virtual Desktop Service
