The goal of N8 CIR is to create a Centre of Excellence in Computationally Intensive Research, sharing methods, skills and facilities to underpin the strategic research objectives of the N8 universities.
Topics and Panelists
One of my favorites discussions was about the academia. I met Dr. Sarah Harris who is a passionate biologist who also is a user of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources, and RSE services.
One of the activities I enjoyed the most was the unconference. We listed in an online document our ideas of how to improve different issues such as sustainable learning, interaction in a team, as others.
I was able to meet a great mathematician who helped me with some Linear Algebra concepts. Felt good in using again chalkboard at the university. Really appreciate the kind help received during the event.
Exquisite Food and Impeccable Service
The organization arranged our stay at Hyatt, and we all enjoyed fine catering and dinners.
