Best practices are an important means of learning through and from others. In the supercomputing community, this is equally important. Twice a year, before the two major global supercomputing conferences – SC and ISC – the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre issues a best practices newsletter with a focussed topic with input from experts around the world.

We're pleased to announce that Plant & Food Research has joined the National Data Transfer Platform.

As researchers increasingly generate and transfer data at expanding rates, NeSI, REANNZ, Globus and other partners have been responding to those needs by improving and extending the capabilities of New Zealand's National Data Transfer Platform. Below are a few recent updates on that work.

Despite the range of challenges 2020 presented for research community gatherings last year, NeSI's re-branding and hosting of the New Zealand Research Software Engineering (NZ RSE) Conference was a resounding success for strengthening connections between those working on the cusp of technical and research domains. 

From April - May 2021, NeSI hosted a ‘NeSI know-how’ webinar mini-series. These short & sharp sessions shared a taste for what is possible when you work on NeSI platforms.Each session was under one hour and covered a popular topic for getting started on the NeSI HPC platform.
