Lunch'n Learn - New Computing Tools for Research

  • Finding your desktop light on storage and power?
  • Too much data in too many places?
  • In need of a fast, simple, and secure way to share files with your research team?

Michele Fash and Gurpreet Matharoo of ACENET are providing an information session on how advanced research computing can help you overcome some of these challenges in your research.

Tuesday, February 7
11:00 am
286A, AVC Learning Commons​

ACENET is a consortium of post-secondary institutions in Atlantic Canada, of which UPEI is a member. It provides researchers and their collaborators access to regional and national advanced research computing (ARC) infrastructure, expertise, support and training. ARC involves using state-of-the-art computing infrastructure, high speed networks and software to address problems that are too large or complex for a desktop computer, typically computationally and/or data intensive. Students graduating with these advanced computing skills are in high demand.

ACENET is a regional partner of Compute Canada, the national organization responsible for advanced research computing infrastructure in Canada.

Join us in this information session to learn about the resources available through ACENET, and how they might benefit your research and students.

Open to faculty, researchers, post-doctoral fellows, IT specialists, and graduate students. Please contact Rosemary McIver ( by 4:00 pm on Friday, February 3rd​, if interested in attending (and if included in lunch) so we can identify the numbers for arrangements.
