Research Computing and Data

eResearch Banner RaID

Advanced computing infrastructure, data storage, visualisation tools and high-speed telecommunications networking are critical enabling factors for world-class research. The convergence of such infrastructure, tools and services to support scholarship and research is commonly known as ‘eresearch’.

UOW is committing to support research by providing infrastructure, tools and services for:

  • Capture, storage, management and protection of research data
  • Computational analysis and data visualisation at scale
  • Access to cloud computing resources and virtual laboratories
  • Accessing tools and services through high speed communication networks
  • Providing training and skills development courses

The UOW Research Services Office is responsible for providing centralised coordination and support for the advanced research computing needs of UOW staff, in collaboration with Information Management and Technology Services (IMTS) and the University Library. The RSO's information Services for Research (ISR) team is responsible for solution delivery and managing strategic partnerships with service providers and NCRIS capabilities.

Upcoming news and events

Introduction to NCI - High Performance Computing Workshop

Staff from the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) Facility will visit UOW on Friday 16th October to run an ‘Introduction to NCI’ training workshop.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an overview of the NCI’s various systems and to get new UOW users up and running on Raijin, the NCI’s primary computing platform. It is recommended that any new NCI users and prospective NCMAS applicants attend the event.

The workshop runs for a full-day with lunch and refreshments provided. The content is highly practical and attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop with WiFi access in order to get the most out of the day.

NCI Merit Allocation Scheme Underway

The National Computational Infrastructure Facility’s 2016 Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS) is currently open. This nationally competitive scheme provides access to High Performance Computing resources to eligible researchers at Australian Universities.

Application forms and additional information about the scheme is available from the NCI’s website

Applications for the scheme close on Friday, 16th October. Eligibility rules have changed from previous years and any staff requiring assistance with their application are encouraged to contact the RSO via
