ICHEC would like to congratulate three Irish based researchers on their recent success in the DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative (DECI) call. Dr. Simone Meloni of UCD, Dr. Turlough Downes of DCU and Dr. Michael Peardon of TCD were all successful. This year ICHEC was pleased to assist a number of applicants with their proposals for what was a very competitive international call where resources where heavily over subscribed. The successful researchers have secured compute time on some of Europe's largest HPC systems along with development assistance from personnel working on the DEISA project.
The work got off to an early start with an informal workshop for the DECI users which was recently hosted at ICHEC's Dublin office. The production compute time will come on stream in September and ICHEC particularly looks forward to working as a co-investigator along with Dr. Meloni and Dr. Downes.
Details of all the projects which were awarded resources can be found here. These DECI projects are excellent examples of Irish based researchers securing access to world class HPC resources through international competition, to complement their use of the ICHEC National HPC service.
