Pawsey/NCI Friday event: COVID-19 Researchers’ update

31 July 2020
1:00pm - 3:00pm


Update from Australian researchers accessing expediated COVID19 allocations at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and the National Computational Infrastructure.

In early April, Australia Tier 1 supercomputing facilities offered accelerated access to researchers undertaking project fighting the pandemic.

Join us to hear the latest updates from Australian researchers using Pawsey and NCI systems to accelerate their COVID19 projects.

Both national facilities are contributing resources to support researchers in Australia in the fight against COVID-19.  NCI is supporting three targeted projects with over 40 million units of compute time on the Gadi supercomputer; while Pawsey Supercomputer Centre has provided access for researchers across five projects to over 1100 cores on the new deployed Nimbus cloud.

During this session, we will hear from researchers working on understanding the lineage of the virus, making statistical inference about potential treatment outcomes, COVID-19 targets molecular modelling and more.

We will provide an opportunity to network with presenters in a relaxing online environment, In these trying times, we would invite you to bring your drink and snacks while enjoying the presentations. A Q&A session will be held at the end of the discussion.
