Researchers welcomed Pawsey experts

After the success of this year’s Roadshow in Hobart and last year’s Roadshow in Melbourne, Pawsey experts recently hit the road again to reach out to researchers in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide!

From March 20th to 24th 2017, the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre staff toured Australia with the Pawsey Roadshow to assist researchers in taking their projects to the next level, through introductory training sessions and information sharing opportunities. The tour started in Brisbane on the 20th and 21st March, continued in Sydney on the 22nd to 23rd March, and finished in Adelaide on the 24th March.

In Brisbane and Sydney, the Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) initiative, Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) held day-long data training for the astronomy community. These events were designed to assist staff with data management and computing practices and help the community to maximise the use of national astronomy-focused infrastructure.

More than 80 people registered to be part of this experience. The National Roadshow was only the beginning, Pawsey will continue going around Australia training and meeting with researchers, and other stakeholders who wanted to find out more about Australia’s Big Science and supercomputer services.

Many thanks to the ongoing support of our interstate friends who helped make the Pawsey National Roadshow possible including eRSA, University of Adelaide; Research Technology Services, University of New South Wales; the Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation; and the Research Computing Centre, University of Queensland.
