HPC Materials Chemistry Consortium

Notice Board (last updated: 19th May 2015)

Themed and Special Issues of MCC work: We have periodically organised a special issue of a high quality journal in order to help showcase the quality and board range of research undertaken by members, which required the use of HPC resources. A big thank you to all members who submitted manuscript(s) to these, including our current special issue of PCCP (a RSC journal).

Acknowledgements: When publishing work that benefited from resources allocated by the MCC: please include the following acknowledgment 'Via our membership of the UK's HEC Materials Chemistry Consortium, which is funded by EPSRC (EP/L000202), this work used the ARCHER UK National Supercomputing Service (http://www.archer.ac.uk).'

If space is limited, please ensure the name of the HEC platform, the phrase "Materials Chemistry Consortium" and *most importantly* the EPSRC grant number (EP/L000202) is acknowledged.

When searching the literature, older work may include references to "HECToR" and "HPCx resources" and refer to funding by EPSRC with grant references of either EP/D504872 or EP/F067496.

Next general meeting: 11:00am Monday 6th July 2015 UCL, Chemistry XLG1 Lecture Theatre -

Proposal Application Deadline for HEC Time on ARCHER: 10am Thursday 25th June 2015

Applications for national HPC time
Note that the new tighter constraints during phase 2 (cf phase 1) of our total usage on ARCHER imposed on us will result in a modified timetable of MCC meetings, and therefore lengths over which projects should run. Importantly, the average spend of budgets should be spent at a constant rate - trying to spend more near end of allocation periods (31 January and 31 July, as well as those determined by us) is not good practice. Any budget deemed to be underused and therefore likely to have time unspent at the end of any of these allocation periods may be reduced in order to maximise the benefit of ARCHER to our community.

Materials Chemistry Conference: from Wednesday lunch 28th March - Friday lunch 30th March 2012.
We thank all project leaders and their group members for supporting this event and demonstrating to the panel the wide variety of HPC research in each of the seven themes.

Traditional location of our meetings: University College London, within either the Ramsay Lecture Theatre, Chemistry Building or Library/Seminar room, near the roof of Kathleen Lonsdale Building: Instructions - map.
