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 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.

DiRAC day will only offer remote attendance for registered participants. We are likely to use Zoom for this.

Durham is a small medieval city situated on the river Wear in the North East of England. It is renowned for its superb medieval castle and cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) and for its world class university. Well worth a visit after lock-down.
