The Irish Supercomputer List organisers, advisory committee, and other stakeholders that we have consulted note a need for a central hub for collaboration in Irish High Performance Computing, which spans all sectors. We envision the Irish Supercomputer List community serving precisely such a purpose as it naturally brings together members of the Irish HPC ecosystem through participation and interaction. We believe that such a collaboration and networking hub is necessary for the Irish HPC community to maintain forward national momentum.
The exact shape of the role that the Irish Supercomputer List is to take in fulfilling this role is open to comment, and will most likely be in a constant state of evolution. If you have any comments, please feel free to contact us, join the mailing list, and follow us on twitter. We expect more to unfold soon.
