This was a Research and Development (R&D) project coordinated by the National Centre of Scientific Research - CNRS of France, and the Centre for Computational Science at the University College of London in The United Kingdom. The focus of this project is to provide imaging scientists with a suitable mechanism to access High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources and to ensure the sustainability of image simulation workflows beyond a particular computing infrastructure and workflow technology.
The project was granted access to a Tier-1 supercomputing provided by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe - PRACE. This includes 1,670,670 standardized PRACE core-hours for MRI simulations. This Tier-1 resource is a Cray XE6 supercomputer called HECToR and it is located at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre - EPCC, the University of Edinburgh.
