Welcome to ACENET’s New Blog!

ACENET’s priority is to serve the advanced computing needs of researchers in Atlantic Canada, and we take that very seriously. After all, ACENET was created 12 years ago by and for researchers in the region.

One of the ways that we ensure that we are responding to your needs is through our Research Directorate, commonly known as the “RD”. The RD works with ACENET’s management team to help represent your advanced research computing interests. It is made up of seven researchers in various disciplines from ACENET’s member institutions. The RD has been the driving force behind initiatives such as the Research Fellowship Program and the Advanced Research Computing Sponsorship Program.

ACENET is excited to be launching this blog as a forum for dialogue between you and the RD. It’s a place to discuss national and regional issues of interest, express thoughts on programs and activities, and share new ideas.

There are many events happening on both the national and regional scenes – this is a great place to ensure that your voice is heard!
