Acknowledgement of using PDC resources for research

If you utilise any of PDC's resources (for example, computer systems, data storage or assistance from application or systems experts) in your research, we ask that you acknowledge PDC in an appropriate way.

Here are recommended acknowledgement formats from various organisations that grant researchers access to PDC's resources.

Access to PDC resources through SNIC

  • "The computations/data handling/[SIMILAR] were/was enabled by resources provided by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) at the PDC Center for High Performance Computing, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, partially funded by the Swedish Research Council through grant agreement no. 2016-07213."

If applicable, also add an acknowledgement for application support using either of the following examples.

  • "[NAME] at PDC is acknowledged for assistance concerning[technical and implementational aspects [OR SIMILAR] in making the code run on the [OR SIMILAR] PDC resources."
  • "We thank [NAME] at PDC for [his/her] assistance with [describe tasks such as porting, optimization, etc.], which was made possible through application support provided by SNIC."

Access to PDC resources through PRACE

  • "We acknowledge PRACE for awarding us access to [Beskow/Tegner/...] hosted by the PDC Centre for High Performance Computing, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.”
