SEMINAR BY PHILIPP SCHLATTER: "SNIC AND SNAC: HANDLING OF LARGE-SCALE COMPUTER TIME ALLOCATIONS IN SWEDEN"
 

Time: 1 October 2019, 13:00-15:00

Location: MC323, MIT Huset, Umeå University

In Sweden, SNIC (Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing) is responsible for providing large-scale computer resources for all
academic users. There are 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.
