Information session on Advanced Research Computing resources and services

SHARCNET (part of Compute Canada) is the primary source of free-to-use High Performance Computing (HPC) and Advanced Research Computing (ARC) resources, services and training for McMaster researchers (faculty, postdocs, and students).

It only takes a few days to get a Compute Canada account; once the account is activated, basic HPC/ARC resources and services become immediately available. For researchers with significant computational needs, the annual Research Allocation Competition (RAC) is held every Autumn. This year, the deadline for RAC applications is November 7.

On October 15th from 1 – 3pm, staff from McMaster’s Research and High Performance Computing Support group (RHPCS) and SHARCNET will be holding an information session for researchers looking for more information about SHARCNET / Compute Canada, and for existing users who are looking to submit a RAC application this round.

New McMaster faculty and grad students are especially welcome.

Location: Mills Library Connections Centre, room L113 (located on the 1st floor of Mills Library). Walk towards the back of the first floor and turn right at the first hallway. The Connections Centre L113 is the first door on your left side.
