SUPERcomputing and BIG data for researchers – Curtin University research week

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and Curtin University are organising “SUPERcomputing and BIG data for researchers” session as part of the Curtin University research week.

SUPERcomputing and BIG data for researchers” will showcase services and resources that Pawsey Supercomputing Centre can provide to Curtin researchers to take their research to the next level.

This free event will see researchers presenting about their experiences as high-performance computing (HPC) users and how their projects have been impacted by Pawsey 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.

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.

The morning will start with an opportunity for existing and potential users who drop in to have one-on-one assistance with Pawsey staff.

If you are a researcher or student who is interested in high-performance computing, or if you want to see if your work can be taken to the next level by using powerful computing resources, we welcome you to come along and meet with Pawsey users and staff.

Date: Friday 22 September 2017

9.00am to 10.00am Drop in clinics (no require booking)

10.00am to 11:30am Presentations (please book here for catering purposes)

Location: Open area at Cisco Innovation Centre, Level 2, Building 216, Curtin University, Bentley Campus

Cost: Free

Program

9.00am Drop in Clinics, a one-on-one session for researchers to meet with Pawsey experts and discuss opportunities, seek for technical advice on how Pawsey can help with a scientific project or get help with code issues.

10.00am Welcome by Pawsey staff

10.05am Researcher presentation about the impact that Pawsey services have on a science project.

  • Dr Andrew King, Senior Lecturer from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at Curtin University. Computational Fluid Dynamics and Supercomputing
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) has been a significant development for computational Science and Engineering. One technique that has benefited greatly is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – a tool for understanding fluid systems by directly solving the Navier-Stokes equations through simulation, in contrast to experimentation. Large HPC systems (such as Pawsey’s “Magnus”) have allowed CFD to be used to investigate previously intractable problems as models can now be developed with finer detail and/or more complexity. This presentation will give an overview of applied fluid problems that have been greatly assisted by Pawsey’s systems in the fields of multiphase flows (filtration and separation), biomedical flows (aerosol drug delivery in the lungs), and renewable energy (Wave Energy Conversion).

10.30am Pawsey Supercomputing Staff presenting about Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services

11.30 am Q&A and networking session. Light lunch will be provided.
