What is ALCS?

ALCS is Australasia’s research supercomputing users’ forum, as well as a flagship promotion of HPC, AI, and Data Science in our region. It will bring together computational researchers from across the spectrum of science for a multidisciplinary mix of collaborative, technical, and networking sessions in several streams:

  • Materials Science

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • Engineering

  • Earth System Science

  • Bioinformatics and Life Science

  • Astronomy, and

  • Art and Social science

Submissions for presentations and posters within each stream will open in the coming weeks. We hope to see some exciting and innovative science and technical outcomes in the streams!

Scholarships available – apply early!

NeSI is keen to support representation and participation from Aotearoa New Zealand research communities at ALCS2023. If you're considering submitting a talk, please reach out to NeSI as early as possible to discuss scholarship opportunities or other ways we can support you to participate in this symposium.

Why attend?

This will be a major opportunity to meet with and learn from peer researchers, all at the forefront of HPC, AI and Data Science research.

In addition, NCI will be offering HPC and AI training courses on the 13th of June, open to all ALCS attendees. Further details about ALCS and the training day will be posted on the event website.
