Dr Darren Gibson in the new iVEC@ECU facility
ECU researchers will have access to cutting edge technology thanks to the university’s own iVEC Visualisation facility.
The iVEC@ECU facility was launched at ECU’s Mount Lawley campus this week. Connecting with the iVEC supercomputer, the facility will allow researchers to take advantage of high-speed supercomputing technology in their research, data storage, visualisation and expert knowledge.
The new iVEC@ECU facility will include:
- A link to the iVEC supercomputer;
- Visualisation equipment including a 3D stereo projector;
- A new video conference unit; and
- Access to a dedicated e-research coordinator.
The facility will be open to all staff across the three Campuses.
CRN Manager for the Office of Research and Innovation Dr Darren Gibson is excited to welcome iVEC to ECU.
“ECU has a long-standing relationship with iVEC and we are really excited to capitalise on this partnership through our own IVEC facility on campus,” Dr Gibson said.
“We encourage researchers to use and take advantage of this new technology as ECU continues to break ground with exciting new research initiatives.”
The event also launched the first iVEC@ECU Visualisation competition, open to all staff. For more information visit the iVEC@ECU Visualisation website.
iVEC is a unincorporated joint initiative between ECU, CSIRO, Murdoch University, The University of Western Australia and Curtin University. For more information visit the IVEC website.
