Research computing

The University of Wollongong offers Partner Share access to Australia’s fastest supercomputer, Gadi, as part of the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) Collaboration Agreement. The UOW Partner Share serves as the university’s computational cluster.

UOW researchers are also encouraged to apply for competitive time on NCI resources through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS). Researchers may use the UOW Partner Share to benchmark their code to strengthen NCMAS applications. The UOW HPC Steering Committee can provide feedback on applications before submission.
