19 Nov 2021 - Singapore researchers granted regular access to reigning world’s top supercomputer in first-of-its-kind arrangement with Japan
A new agreement between Japan’s Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) and National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore opens the path for Singapore researchers to regularly access and request for supercomputing resources from the world’s most powerful supercomputer, Japan’s Fugaku system. In the first such arrangement of its kind outside of Japan, Singapore researchers can now apply for available resources through an annual Call for Projects to Fugaku, which will be coordinated by NSCC and RIST. The agreement which was signed between RIST and NSCC is a milestone for both organisations. The agreement builds on an earlier Memorandum of Understanding on Information Exchange Concerning Promotion of Supercomputer Utilization between RIST and NSCC.
