ARCHER 2 Survey from EPSRC

As you are aware, EPSRC is seeking views on HPC provision to replace the current ARCHER service. Please take a few minutes to complete the Survey.

EPSRC very much value your input.

Visit their blog for debate, shared thinking and new perspectives on issues affecting the engineering and physical sciences community.

N.B. When you press 'Save and Continue Later', it directs to the end of a long page, but the text is at the top, so users need to scroll up. You can then enter your details and the system sends an email with a link for continuation. However, some domains appear to be blocking the automatic response, including some '.ac.uk' ones. EPSRC have added text to the front page to alert people to this and they recommend that users get the link through a generic (Hotmail, Gmail etc.) address.
