8th BEAR User Forum - 26 May 2011

The 8th BEAR User Forum was held on 26th May 2011 in Lecture Room NG15 in the Gisbert Kapp Building, building G8 in the Green Zone of the campus map. As recurrent funding for research computing has been approved by the University, the theme of this meeting was on the Users' vision on the future development of Research Computing provision in the University. Possible developments include:

 


Application need

  • Computational intensive
  • Data intensive
  • Rendering and other specialist computing
  • Intensive computing from user friendly software such as MATLAB and Excel

Facility need

  • web-based access portals
  • application-specific portals
  • a Microsoft compute cluster

The agenda was:

  • 09.30 - 10.00: Tea (Railway Centre meeting room, which is close to Lecture Room NG15 and will be signposted from there.)
  • 10.00 - 10.20: Computational Nanoscience on BlueBEAR (abstract) (presentation) - Professor Roy Johnston (Chemistry)
  • 10.20 - 11.15: Future development of the BEAR services -  Sean Duffy/Paul Hatton. This was followed by an open discussion on the users' vision on the future development of Research Computing
  • 11.15 - 11.40: Coffee (Railway Centre meeting room, which is close to Lecture Room NG15 and will be signposted from there.)
  • 11.40 - 12.00:  Finite Element Analysis and Experiment Investigation of Tyre Characteristics for Developing Strain-based Intelligent Tyre  (abstract) (presentation) - Xiaoguang Yang (Mechanical Engineering)
  • 12.00 - 12.15: User Group activities (Andrew Chan)
