The HECToR Service is now closed and has been superceded by ARCHER.

HECToR/ARCHER User Meeting, 12 December 2012, London

Register by 5th December 2012

On behalf of EPSRC, NAG would like to invite current and future users of the national HPC service to a meeting on December 12th in London. The morning session will be devoted to the HECToR service and will include a Q&A session with representatives of the funding agencies and service providers. In the afternoon the focus will be on the next service, ARCHER, with an update on the ongoing hardware procurement exercise and an opportunity to put forward user requirements for the upcoming CSE and Service Provision procurements.

This is your chance to help us improve the HECToR service, and to ensurethat ARCHER is aligned to the needs of you and your community.
