If you are using an aspect of the BEAR services you are probably not alone. Setting up a Special Interest Group is a good way of getting and receiving peer group support, often from people outside of your research area. Any BEAR-related service is a candidate for a SIG, and could include:
- Application specific groups, such as Abaqus (finite-element structural analysis) or Ansys CFX and Fluent (computational fluid dynamics)
- Domain specific groups such as *Omics with specialist resources such as Galaxy and GATK
- Programming languages, including parallel code development
Offers to help in or lead any of these subgroups would be welcomed by the BEAR User Group Chair, Dr. Liza Jabbour (Department of Management) (L.Jabbour@bham.ac.uk).
