ARCHER 2 Town Hall Meeting

You may be aware that the ARCHER High Performance Computing (HPC) service is due for renewal in 2018/19. We are initiating a project to scope and design the successor to the ARCHER machine.

As part of the planning exercise for this project, we are seeking in-depth user engagement through various routes to ensure we capture the scientific, technological and service needs for the next generation of national Tier 1 HPC.

I would like to invite your participation in a user-focussed workshop where we will explore and seek feedback on user requirements and begin to scope potential hardware and service solutions.

In an informal workshop format, this Town Hall meeting will present the results of the survey and invite discussion on the initial conclusions and scope for the ARCHER2 project. We regret that we are unable to provide travel costs, but lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day.

If you would like to attend, please email ARCHER2@erpsrc.ac.uk with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your affiliation/institution
  • Research Council
  • Membership of Consortia
  • Science Area
  • Any other relevant information
  • Dietary requirements or other needs

Space at the event is limited and we will let you know as soon as possible if you have been secured a place.

I hope you will be able to participate and contribute to these important discussions.
