WestGrid Office Hours: RAC 2017



Are you considering applying to one of Compute Canada’s Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC)? WestGrid Support Staff are hosting an online “Office Hours” session to answer your questions about RAC 2017, including:

  • Do I need to apply to the RAC or can my needs be served by the Rapid Access Service?
  • Which competition should I apply to?
  • What kinds of resources are available to request?
  • I had a RAC allocation last year, do I need to re-apply?
  • ...and more!

There is no formal presentation being delivered. You can drop in / connect at any point during the hour-long session to ask WestGrid Support Staff your question. You can stay to listen to other users' questions, or disconnect after getting the answers you need.
