Bluefire supporting two intensive workshops, July 30 - Aug 10, 2012

July 30, 2012

The Bluefire system will be supporting two significant training activities in late July and early August, and other users may experience slightly slower turnaround as a result. Students participating in these activities will have access to a higher-priority queue to ensure jobs can be completed in a timely fashion for the training exercises.

The heaviest student load will occur in the afternoons from July 30 to August 3 when the two-week Dynamical Core Model Intercomparison Project (DCMIP, see http://esse.engin.umich.edu/groups/admg/dcmip/) summer school and the weeklong 2012 Community Earth System Modeling tutorial (see http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/events/tutorials/073012/) overlap. Student usage will decrease accordingly during the second week.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask users to plan their work accordingly.
