Led by Compute Canada, the Sustainable Planning for Advanced Research Computing Phase II (SPARC2) is a consultation process to gather feedback from users and researchers on the types of investment required to enable Canada’s excellence and leadership in science and innovation.
This phase of consultation will gather feedback from researchers on community needs from 2017-2022. This will inform capital planning (technology choices), service offerings and the setting of operational priorities.
Compute Canada’s capital and operations priorities are driven by the needs of the Canadian research community. In spring 2016, Compute Canada will submit an operations proposal to the CFI Major Science Initiatives (MSI) competition, covering operations from 2017-2022, along with an updated capital plan covering the same period. The organization is committed to receiving direct input to planning priorities during this period.

Please register as seating is limited.
