No doubt you have all heard about the cloud. Possibly some of you are even using some form of cloud for back up of data form your phone or other media device. Have you ever thought about using the cloud for serious computing? This week Brendan Davey from TPAC (Tasmanian Partnership for Advanced Computing) will give us an introduction to NeCTAR, the eCloud and how it can be used to facilitate and assist our research (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to tell their friends that they are using a virtual supercomputer for their analyses?).
ALSO: Coming up next week we have Andrew Klekociuk from the Atmospheric Physics section of the Australian Antarctic Division. If you have an idea for a DaSH talk then please put your hand up.
IMAS Aurora Lecture Theatre – it’s the big lecture theatre on the left as you walk into the waterfront building foyer – 20 Castray Esplanade, Battery Point, next to CSIRO.
