A Message from the Scientific Director of McGill HPC

These are the great times for high performance computing (HPC)! More than ever before in history, innovation in science, education, medicine, engineering, social sciences and business are advancing in "leaps and bounds" through the use of sophisticated computing advances.

At McGill HPC our mission is to provide the highest level of HPC support and operations to research, education and industry in Quebec and Canada. We are the latest HPC facility to come on-line in the Calcul Quebec/Compute Canada networks and soon to be one of the largest capacity HPC facility in the country.

Our analysts are happy to work with researchers or research projects to help them overcome problems ranging from numerical methods, coding optimization and efficient use of HPC resources. We pride ourselves on the expertise of our operations and support team, and their ability to solve problems in a rapid and professional manner.
