Supporting Distributed Research Through Advanced Collaboration
Scientific research is rapidly becoming a global endeavour. Today's complex computational problems not only require a wide range of technologies to solve them, but they also require a wide range of expertise which often means distributed research teams, sometimes spread around the world. This session will provide a comprehensive overview of WestGrid's advanced collaboration facilities, which are located at 15 partner institutions across Western Canada and can be used to connect with colleagues across the province, country and overseas. WestGrid Collaboration Staff will showcase recent upgrades, discuss room capabilities, and demonstrate applications within a research environment.
