PDC-SeRC seminar: "SNIC and SNAC: Handling of large-scale computer time allocations in Sweden"
PDC and SeRC are hosting a series of seminars about e-Science where SeRC members and other interested researchers and students can meet to exchange ideas and listen to inspiring e-Science presentations by outstanding researchers.
Time: Fri 2019-10-04 13.00 - 15.00
Lecturer: Philipp Schlatter
Location: SeRC room, 5th floor Teknikringen 14, KTH
In Sweden, SNIC (Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing) is responsible for providing large-scale computer resources for all academic users. There are three levels of grants: SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE. Whereas the former two are handled at the six centres individually, the LARGE applications are dealt with by the SNAC (Swedish National Allocation Committee) twice a year.
In this talk, Philipp Schlatter (current chairperson of SNAC) will introduce the SNIC operation, and the specific procedures of how these large allocations are handled will be discussed. In addition, there is the possibility to ask questions about the required content of the applications, and best practice guidelines.
