New webinar: Introduction to Slurm

We are happy to announce the release of a new webinar. This webinar series covers the basics of Slurm, an open source, fault-tolerant, and highly scalable cluster management and job scheduling …

ADACS LMS: online webinars

Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) is an initiative by Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) aiming to provide astronomy-focused training, support and expertise to allow Australian astronomers to maximise the scientific …

Simplifying access to High-Performance Galaxy Modelling

Using software support resources acquired under the 2017B semester of the ADACS Software Support scheme, ADACS has enabled an outward-facing user interface for GBKFIT: a publicly-available application for kinematic galaxy modelling. Features include a range of accepted data inputs (including flux, velocity, and velocity dispersion maps, as well as spectral cubes) and kinematic models (including exponential, flat, arctan, Epinat, and more), all wrapped in a secured web application (including a relational database and workflow management system) enabling providing support for a rich user community.

Deadline Extension – Scientific Computing and Software Development Services – EOI – 2018A

Within Q1/2 2018, ADACS will provide the equivalent of a minimum of 1 full-time computational scientist as a resource to the community.  A diversely qualified team will participate, with expertise covering a variety of areas including (but not limited to): system analysis and design, scientific computing, high-performance computing, data science, web development, large-scale scientific databases, cloud computing and scientific visualization.

Introduction to computing and data science for astronomers

This 3-day workshop is aimed at postgraduate students and ECRs who might not have had formal computational training and would like to get up to speed. Practical examples in the workshop are taken from observational astronomy, however, participation is open to all Australian astronomers.

Speeding-up Reionization with GPUs

Using software support resources acquired under the 2017B semester of the ADACS Software Support scheme, Dr. Simon Mutch of the University of Melbourne has partnered with ADACS in the effort to supply accurate theoretical models capable of predicting the progression of this transition, and of interpreting these exciting observations once they become available.
