C3SE (Chalmers Centre for Computational Science and Engineering) is Chalmers' infrastructure for demanding computing calculations and data storage. It provides researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg and in the rest of Sweden with hardware resources as well as software and knowledge of numerical modelling, simulation and analysis. The facility is one of the nodes of the Swedish supercomputer Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC.
Currently, C3SE has some 800 active users, half of whom are from Chalmers. The number of users and assignments with large-scale storage needs and a data intensive work flow is steadily increasing. Consequently, a new resource for calculations is under construction. The maximum performance of the new system is expected to be around 300 teraflops, i.e. 300 trillion floating-point operations per second.
In order to gain access to the facility's resources, it is mandatory for new users to participate in one of the introductory seminars that C3SE regularly arranges.
