Upcoming town hall discussion on GT Supercomputing Services

Thursday December 2, 2010

The campus Partnership for an Advanced Computing Environment (PACE) will be hosting an informational session with Q&A about current supercomputing capabilities on campus. The meeting will be held in MARC room 101 on Thursday, December 9 at 1:00 PM.

The PACE is a partnership between Georgia Tech faculty and the Office of Information Technology, which is focused on High Performance Computing (HPC). PACE provides faculty participants a sustainable leading-edge HPC infrastructure with technical support services. You are encouraged to visit our new website www.pace.gatech.edu.

This meeting is open to all, and we will share information and answer questions about the following topics:

- What equipment and services are currently available to faculty?
- What is the cost to use these facilities? (small allocations are no
charge!)
- How can faculty participate in the partnership?
- How are the shared resources (e.g. the FoRCE cluster) governed?

In particular, if you have any intentions of purchasing large scale research computing equipment (e.g. > $5,000) in the next 6-9 months, you may be able to leverage substantial discounts and other benefits by participating in the PACE services.

For more information, please visit www.pace.gatech.edu or email pace-support@oit.gatech.edu. Please pass along this announcement to colleagues who may have interest in HPC resources at Georgia Tech.
