HPC Workshops

The research support team organise workshops as an opportunity for all users of HPC facilities at Sussex to get together and hear talks from other users, with the aim of sharing with other users how the computing cluster is being used to further their research.

The workshops aim to foster links between users from different research areas, with a view to building a strong user community. We would like to develop a centre of excellence for HPC at Sussex and this can only be achieved by sharing ideas and learning from each other.
