This year’s Visualize This! Challenge is being coordinated by WestGrid, SciNet, SHARCNET, and Calcul Québec -- all regional partners of Compute Canada.

This year’s Challenge is focusing on processing and visualizing large datasets with parallel rendering. Any dataset that is too large to be rendered on a standalone desktop/workstation would qualify for this competition.

The competition is open to anyone affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution (college or university) or research organization. This Challenge provides a valuable learning opportunity to enhance your visualization skills, no matter what your research area may be, so participants from all research fields are encouraged to enter.

Description

Compute Canada provides a wide range of storage options to cover the needs of our very diverse users. These storage solutions range from high-speed temporary local storage to different kinds of long-term storage, so you can choose the storage medium that best corresponds to your needs and usage patterns.

In most cases the filesystems on Compute Canada systems are a shared resource and for this reason should be used responsibly - unwise behaviour can negatively affect dozens or hundreds of other users.

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of key file access control approaches and some common best practices.
