Drop-in Consultation Available for Researchers Applying to The Alliance Resource Allocation Competition

October 10, 2023

The Alliance has two competitions that can help you access resources needed to conduct your research.

The competitions opened on September 26 and have a final deadline to apply of November 7, 2023.

  1. The Resources for Research Group (RRG) competition is for researchers who need compute, storage and cloud resources beyond what is given by Rapid Access Service (RAS), and
  2. The Resources Platforms and Portals (RPP) competition is aimed at researchers who wish to improve access to shared datasets, enhance existing online research tools and facilities or advance national or international research collaborations.

UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC) staff are hosting two drop-in consultation sessions for researchers interested in applying:

  • October 19, 3:00-4:00 pm – Zoom
  • October 24, 1:00-2:00 pm – Zoom 

No advance registration required.

Experts will be available to speak with you about your application, including the new GPU resource requests changes. With the growing popularity in Alliance resources and the UBC ARC Sockeye system, it is important to consider your current and future research needs and apply for the RAC.  

If these times do not work for you, please contact us at arc.support@ubc.ca to book a 1:1 consultation.
