NZ eScience Infrastructure workshop, Thu. 13 Sep. 10am-3pm

 Are you a postgraduate student who needs high capacity storage, fast data manipulation or high capacity/fast linkage? If so, this workshop may be for you! 

WHAT: NeSI: New Zealand eScience Infrastructure workshop.
WHEN: Thursday 13 September 10am-3pm.
WHERE: Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, Gate 2B, University of Waikato.
RSVP: To register your interest for this event email <t.mcnamara@auckland.ac.nz> by 10 September.

The NeSI road show consists of presentations, demonstrations, and discussions, focusing on high performance computing (HPC) and funding opportunities to HPC facilities. HPC support services such as data storage, data transfer and authentication offerings will also be discussed.

The morning will consist of a presentation about NeSI and several demonstrations of how to use its facilities. In the afternoon, the team is available for individual appointments and small group discussion on discipline-specific issues. 

If you are a researcher from postgraduate to Principal Investigator, with an interest in applying HPC to your project this road show is for you. Researchers from all University faculties, as well as other tertiary institutes, Crown Research Institutes, and research organisations are welcome. Despite its title, NeSI is not restricted to scientists, but could prove invaluable for researchers in a range of disciplines from music to demographics.

This is a networking opportunity hosted by the University of Waikato eResearch Advisory Forum for information gathering and exchange amongst researchers.
