NIWA will be hosting a free tour of its High Performance Computing Facility (HPCF) for eReseach delegates during eResearch NZ 2021. Tours will last approximately 15-20 minutes and share a behind-the-scenes look at Māui and Mahuika, the supercomputers that power NeSI’s HPC Platform. Please note: the facility is not wheelchair accessible and the inside of the datacentre can be very loud.

Both tours depart and return from the conference venue – Victoria University, Te Toki a Rata (TTR) building, Kelburn parade. Friday’s bus will include a drop-off stop at the airport before returning to Victoria University, for those who may be departing Wellington that evening. 

Registration for the NIWA Tour is done during the normal conference registration process.
