Apologies in advance for any duplicates you receive!!
If you're attending the EDUCAUSE 2012 conference in Denver next week, please come to the Research Computing discussion session...
SESSION TYPE: DISCUSSION SESSION
This meeting provides a forum for discussing research computing, research cyberinfrastructure, and the use of technology to support the administration of the research enterprise. The deputy director of the San Diego Supercomputing Center will present the Research Cyberinfrastructure Initiative that emerged from UC San Diego's "Blueprint for the Digital University."
If you'd like more information about Richard Moore's presentation, he has already uploaded his slides to the "Resources" tab at the session's web page at: <http://www.educause.edu/annual-conference/2012/research-computing>
This message also announces the annual survey regarding how your small HPC cluster (or clusters) are configured and the associated staffing.
The survey instrument is available at <http://tinyurl.com/smallHPC>
The results of the survey will be presented at the upcoming Supercomputing 12 conference in Salt Lake City, UT at the Birds of a Feather (BoF) session for Small High Performance Computing Centers. Aggregate survey results will also be made available to anyone who would like to see them.
There is a Google Site associated with these annual BoFs at: https://sites.google.com/site/smallhpc/ The site contains notes from the three previous meetings.
There is also a Google Group email list for those who have attended the BoFs in the past and anyone else who is interested at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/small-hpc
Thanks very much!
