The Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC) is the national high performance computing (HPC) centre in Ireland, established in 2005 and hosted by the National University of Ireland, Galway (with offices in both Galway and Dublin). The centre hosts a multi-disciplinary team of staff, including system administrators/engineers, HPC specialists, software developers and computational scientists who collaborates with both academic and industry organisations. ICHEC has strong credentials in enabling scientific applications through the use of HPC; it has significant in-house expertise in deploying climate and weather codes and earth observation data processing/management workloads. ICHEC is also recognised internationally as a leading research centre in novel many-core HPC architectures, such as GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi co-processors.
Over the course of the HPC-Europa3 project, ICHEC will be hosting a number of visitors, typically several weeks in duration, in close collaboration with EPCC in the UK. Visitors will have the opportunities to work with Irish scientists and researchers, and will be able to take advantage of Irish and UK-based HPC resources. More details for potential visitors will be made available soon.
