Each fall, Compute Canada hosts a national Resource Allocation Competition (RAC) for researchers who require greater than the default usage level (either compute orstorage) on any of its systems. The competition is open to projects from all disciplines — from humanities to engineering — and allocations are awarded based on scientific merit, quality of the research team, and development of highly-qualified personnel (HQP). This competition is peer reviewed and the allocations are available for one (1) year starting in early January 2016. Although all users have access to our team of Compute Canada technical experts, we do not allocate dedicated support (ie. programmers, developers) as a part of this resource competition. Join this special SHARCNET webinar where we will discuss the RAC process, who should consider applying as well what a RAC award will actually mean to your research and job workflow. Attendees will be able to ask questions they may have about the process and get advice on how to proceed with their application.
