Pawsey Roadshow and User Forum in Brisbane

27 September 2018
9:00am - 12:00pm
Event cost: Free

Pawsey experts will be in Brisbane to showcase our services and researchers outcomes to Queensland’s researcher community. They will also take the opportunity to get together with users and potential users as part of the Pawsey User Forum.

Please join us on September 27.

Venue: University of Queensland, Sir Llew Edwards Building Room 14-219.

Roadshow (9.00-10.30)

The Pawsey Roadshow is an event showcasing services and resources that Pawsey Supercomputing Centre provides to researchers across Australia.

This free event will see researchers presenting their experiences as high-performance computing (HPC) users and how their projects have been impacted by Pawsey’s services and expertise. Staff from Pawsey will also be presenting information about the organisation and answering questions from researchers who would like to take advantage of HPC and related services.

If you are a researcher who:

  • is interested in high-performance computing,
  • has large-scale data issues,
  • is working in astronomy and who needs special training,
  • wants to see if your work can be taken to the next level by using powerful computing and data resources, or
  • would like to influence the future of the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre,

This event is for you.

9.00 am Welcome by Pawsey Staff

9.10 am Travis Mitchell presentation: “There and Back Again: A story of model development, multiphase flow and cluster computing

Travis Mitchell is a final year PhD candidate in the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering at The University of Queensland. His research develops multiphase lattice Boltzmann methods in order to improve the understanding of the complex fluid flows found in natural gas wells. Currently, the compute facilities at Pawsey allow him to conduct high-fidelity simulations of liquid-gas interactions in scenarios applicable to gas extraction. In particular, the Magnus and Zeus clusters have been used for computation and post-processing, which has facilitated detailed parameter investigations that have been disseminated in three recent publications.

9.30 am Accelerating science outcomes through Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services at Pawsey by Pawsey Supercomputing Centre staff.

10.00 am Q&A and networking session

The User Forum (10.30-12.00)

Pawsey staff are taking the opportunity to discuss your experiences using Pawsey services. We want to hear from you to find out what we are doing well and where we can improve. Do not wait until the end of year survey, join us to have your say!

Your feedback can cover all aspects of interactions with the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. This may include the full project lifecycle of application, allocation management, usage, and reporting for the various supercomputing, data, cloud and visualisation systems that Pawsey operates. This is also your chance to help us shape the future of HPC for Australia’s researchers.

Potential users are also invited to discuss workflows and help us understand their supercomputing, visualisation, data analytics and storage future requirements.

Both events are free but registration is required to participate.
