Application expert help at NSC

The application experts typically provide user support in their area of expertise. The support ranges from answering questions on running specific calculations and installation of new software to more advanced support, for example:

  • tuning and optimizing code
  • parallelizing code
  • compiling, installing and benchmarking code
  • helping with visualization techniques and tools
  • helping with workflow for analysis of simulation output and data management
  • helping with selection of code given a specific scientific question
  • creating tutorials and manuals
  • organizing workshops

Applying for advanced support

Advanced user support can also be provided in form of short- or long-term projects involving application experts, decided on a case for case basis depending on available expertise and time. This can range from e.g. 2 weeks benchmarking to 1 year of parallelizing and optimizing a code. Contact for further information.
