NEMO First User Assembly
On July 14th, the first NEMO user assembly took place. The date was chosen to give NEMO users from the state of Baden-Württemberg the chance to attend both user assembly and inauguration ceremony with a single business trip. The large seminar room in the Rechenzentrum in Freiburg was well filled with about 50 scientists from the respective communities present. The HPC team gave a presentation on NEMO with background information on the underlying ideas for its operating model. Discussions cycled around important issues of governance and fair use of resources. The term "Rechenvorhaben" needed particular explanation. There was a general consensus that "Rechenvorhaben" will initially be used for fairshare queuing and that workgroup/project leaders should be responsible for applying for new "Rechenvorhaben".
The first NEMO user assembly was a very pleasant experience and the HPC team wishes to thank all attendants.
