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.
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.
Scientific Computing and Software Development Services – EOI
Within Q3/4 2017, ADACS will provide the equivalent 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.
The allocation of these resources will be merit-based with the final evaluation to be performed by the Astronomy Supercomputing Time Allocation Committee (ASTAC).
