The Rebecca J. Holz series in Research Data Management is a monthly lecture series hosted during the spring and fall academic semesters. Research Data Services invites speakers from a variety of disciplines to talk about their research or involvement with data.

On September 7th, Lauren Michael from the Center for High-Throughput Computing (CHTC) gave a talk entitled “Beyond-Desktop Computing and Your Research”. You can find the slides on the Research Data Services Speakerdeck page.

“Beyond-Desktop Computing and Your Research” provided an introduction into resources available on campus for researchers or students whose computing needs have grown beyond the capabilities of their personal computers. Michael’s talk covered three main topics – why a researcher may need large scale computing including what the different forms of large scale computing look like, how those resources work on our campus, and how the CHTC research computing facilitators at UW-Madison can help researchers. If you have any questions about the CHTC or want to get in touch with a research computing facilitator, you can contact them at the CHTC website under “Get Started”.
