Poster Competition

As usual on DiRAC day we have a poster competition, and this year it will go ahead as usual, but with a slightly modified structure.

The two competitions will be sponsored by Intel. With competitions for Phds and PostDocs. Intel has very generously donated £500 prize for the winners. All entrants must complete the submission form and either tell us where we can download their submissions, or email the submission to us.

All entries are required to submit a pdf poster as well as a short 2 minute video by Monday the 7th of September 2020.

The submission form can be found here. Good Luck

Poster entries can be found here.

DiRAC Day

DiRAC day meeting will be an entirely virtual meeting. There will not be any event held in Durham this year, please do not try to travel to this event.

DiRAC Day provides an opportunity to meet and catch up with others from the DiRAC HPC community, learn about what is being done by all the different consortia, present and view posters on recent research achievements. This will be no different this year, with an online poster competition, sponsored by Intel, and the very best of last year’s research achievements being streamed live.

There will be an opportunity to learn about the future direction of the four HPC services, what new services DiRAC will be offering in the next year, and how DiRAC is collaborating with others to bring new opportunities to the DiRAC community.

So join the event, submit your poster, find out how your colleagues/reveals are doing, and how DiRAC can help you and your research.

DiRAC day will only offer remote attendance for registered participants, so do not miss out and register today.

DiRAC Day

DiRAC Day provides an opportunity to meet others from the DiRAC HPC community, learn about what is being done by all the different consortia, present and view posters on recent research achievements and discuss training and support needs for DiRAC. DiRAC users will also have the chance to meet members of the technical support teams for each DiRAC service machine in person as well as to interact with the industry vendors who supplied the hardware we are now exploiting.

Previous DiRAC days

You can find below the links to the web pages of previous DiRAC days.

Dirac Day COC

Code of Conduct

DiRAC is committed to creating a work environment that is safe, professional and of mutual trust where diversity and inclusion are valued, and where everyone is entitled to be treated with courtesy and respect. DiRAC is committed to making DiRAC Day and all associated activities safe and professional environments for everyone. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Please follow these guidelines:

1. Behave professionally. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate. Harassment includes sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording of an individual without consent. It also includes offensive comments related to individual characteristics, for example: age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, nationality or religion.

2. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual or sexist language and imagery is not appropriate.

3. Be respectful and do not insult or put down other attendees or facilitators of the event. Critique ideas not people.

4. Should a participant witness events of bullying, harassment or aggression, we recommend that they approach the affected person to show support and check how they are. The witness may also wish to suggest that the person report the inappropriate behaviour. However, it is up to the affected person alone whether or not they wish to report it.

5. If participants wish to share photos of a speaker on social media, we strongly recommend that they first get the speaker’s permission. Participants may also share the contents of talks/slides via social media unless speakers have asked that specific details/slides not be shared.

The DiRAC Day Local Organising Committee has two members who are designated as the contact points for all matters related to this code. These members are Mark Wilkinson and Rebecca Nealon. Participants can report any violation of these guidelines to these designates in confidence. If asked to stop inappropriate behaviour participants are expected to comply immediately and, in serious cases, may be asked to leave the event without a refund. DiRAC will not tolerate retaliation against anyone reporting violations of this code of conduct.

Thank you for helping to make DiRAC Day welcoming for all.
