Inaugural Research Computing Center (RCC) Town Hall

This event is concluded; you can see a recording of it on Microsoft Stream or download the slide-deck (PDF).

The purpose of the meeting is to let the FSU community know about some of the services offered by the RCC and to share with you our vision for the future of the Center.

Since its inception, the RCC has grown from being a host for a shared computing cluster to being a full-fledged research computing center offering services such as high-performance computing, data storage, training, and consulting.

With the growth of computational needs in all domains of research, the RCC seeks to expand its services so that it can cater to a broader community of FSU users, including researchers who might not consider themselves to be traditional users of high-performance computing. To this end, the RCC has restructured its funding model and established a faculty-led Management Board to help the Center grow to match the needs of FSU researchers.

In the town hall, we will describe the RCC, the new funding model, and the use-cases for all computational experience levels from beginner to advanced.

Most importantly, we want to hear from you. So, the town hall will conclude with a question-and-answer session where you can ask questions about the Center and make suggestions for us to consider in the future. We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend.


This will be a hybrid meeting, with the option to attend in-person or online.
