On 20 June 2016, the Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) and the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore (NSCC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) expressing interest to conduct bilateral exchange of information.
RIST is a Japanese non-profit public-service organisation working for the development and utilisation of computational science and technology to support highly information-oriented societies. It currently oversees the awarding process of K computer general use category project proposals, High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) system project proposals and user services and technical support.
In accordance with the MOU, RIST and NSCC will schedule regular meetings for the exchange of information between both organisations on activities relating to the areas of:
- promotion of shared use of supercomputers,
- supercomputer user support and human resource development, and
- exploring the possibility of co-operation related to these activities.
Through these activities, both organisations aim to contribute to the HPC community in each country as well as collaboration between two communities.
