------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 – ACAM workshop
------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are pleased to mention that an ACAM workshop is to take
place in Dublin on the 14th-16th of October 2009. This event is
entitled "Towards microscale molecular simulations with
high-performance computing". It will give current and potential
HPC users the opportunity to discuss scientific and computing
issues. A particular emphasis will be placed on molecular
dynamics simulations of synthetic and natural systems for ICT
and Bio applications. Those interested can find further
information and registration details here:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 – Blue Gene /L & Class B reminder
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a reminder that the IBM BlueGene /L machine Lanczos
is open for testing purposes to any class B project member 4
days a week (from Mondays 12:00pm to Fridays 12:00pm).
This is an opportunity for evaluating the scalability of your
applications up to 2048 cores. If you are interested, simply
request an account on the system via the helpdesk.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
3 – Visualisation suite
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The immersive visualisation suite is now commissioned with
3D projection and motion tracking. It is available as a service
to all our users, with ICHEC staff providing assistance with any
custom development work that may be required. If you would
like a demonstration you are welcome to visit the Hub on
Grand Canal quay.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
4 – HPC Hub
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The start of the academic year often means new faces. If
your group has new members who would like to familiarise
themselves with HPC methodologies and ICHEC's systems
they are welcome to visit our offices in Dublin where visitor
workstations are available and advice is nearby.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
5 – Transferring hours to Stoney
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Users of Stokes who wish to exploit the increased amount
of memory available on the Stoney system can do so by
transferring hours from a project on Stokes to Stoney. To do
so the project PI should make a request via the helpdesk.
When transferring hours a conversion factor is applied, 1 hour
on Stoney corresponds to 1.39 hours on Stokes.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
6 – Publications
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The most recent addition to the list of publications which
acknowledged ICHEC's support is: "Intrinsic ferromagnetism in
CeO2: dispelling the myth of vacancy site localization mediated
superexchange" by Keating P.R.L., Scanlon D.O. and
Watson G.W., published in J. Phys.: Condens. Matter

If you have acknowledged ICHEC in a publication as per:
http://www.ichec.ie/support/faq#faqitem21 we ask that you
please let us know.
