SNIC and SNAC: Handling of large-scale computer time allocations in Sweden

Place: Jordan-Fermi (J402), Fysikhuset, Campus Valla, Linköping
Time: September 23, 2019. 13:30 - 15:30


In Sweden, SNIC (Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing) is responsible for providing large-scale computer resources for all academic users. There are essentially three levels of grants: SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE. Whereas the former two are handled at the six centres individually, the LARGE applications are dealt with by the SNAC (Swedish National Allocation Committee) twice a year. In this talk, Philipp Schlatter (current chairperson of SNAC) will introduce the SNIC operation, and the specific procedures of how these large allocations are handled will be discussed. In addition, there is the possibility to ask questions about the required content of the applications, and best practice guidelines.
