Do you want help writing better applications to Compute Canada's Resource Allocation Competition (RAC) to help increase your science score and chance to receive a larger allocation for 2019?

Does your research need large-scale computing, cloud resources, data management, or storage?

Join us for information about Research Computing Services, Resources & Support from the University of Manitoba and WestGrid. This FREE session will provide an overview of some of the expertise, resources and services available to support your research needs. The CTO of WestGrid and lead of the RAC technical review, will present some strategies and best practices to help researchers submit better applications to the 2019 RAC which are due November 2018.

We would also like to hear about your projected ARC needs for the next 3-5 years. This will be important in light of the recent commitment to increased federal funding for Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) of over $500 million in the next five years. WestGrid is committed to helping ensure that upcoming national investments reflect the needs of researchers in western Canada.
