HPC Directors! Let us know what's bothering you!

Share this on social media:

Scientific Computing World is searching for scientists and researchers that have found themselves running HPC centres, to share their experiences – specifically in relation to the use of HPC to further scientific research – as articles on the SCW website and in the magazine.

We have come up with some common challenges that have arisen from previous discussions, but we are keen to hear of any other problems you have come across:

  • Demonstrating ROI
  • Recruiting and training personnel
  • Funding the development of resources
  • Technical challenges for running a HPC centre
  • Uptime and maintenance
  • Allocating resources, budgeting and billing

If you are interested in sharing your thoughts, opinions and best practice with our readership of scientists and engineers, please get in touch with the editor, Robert Roe, (robert.roe@europascience.com) and we'll take it from there. We can have a chat on the phone or we can send you through a list of questions.

We are also very happy to hear from commercial organisations who can recommend HPC centres to us!
