DiRAC (Distributed facility for Research using Advanced Computing) is STFCÕs High Performance Computing facility for theoretical astrophysics and particle physics. Following success with DiRAC phase 1 we are now moving on to new more powerful machines under DiRAC phase 2.
The day provides an opportunity to meet others from the HPC community, learn about what is being done by all the different consortia, present and view posters on recent research achievements and discuss training and support needs for DiRAC 2.
The programme will begin at 10:30am and end at 4pm
We plan lunch along with a poster session from 12:30 to 2pm. We will have to make a cash charge of £10 on the day for lunch and tea/coffee.
