Calcul Quebec is one of the regional partners within the Compute Canada Federation. Therefore, its users also have access to the resources of the national platform that are managed by the other regional partners: ACENET, Compute Ontario and WestGrid.
What You Have to Do
1- To be a Calcul Quebec user, you need an account with the Compute Canada Federation. If you are a student, the Principal Investigator acting as your research director must have an active account. With your account, you instantly have the basic allocation of resources, you can get to know the environment and start working right away.
2- The basic allocation will probably be enough resources you need, but if you require more, you can apply to the Resource Allocation Competitions where applications submitted by all researchers are evaluated for both technical feasibility and scientific excellence.
