BCCVL to showcase in England

BCCVL will showcase its platform at Lancaster University’s Data Science Institute on Wednesday, 12 April 2017.

England’s National Environment Research Council, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and Lancaster University have invited Australia’s Biodiversity and Climate Change Virtual Laboratory (BCCVL) to demonstrate its modelling platform to researchers and students this month.

QRIScloud and National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) provide cloud compute and data storage for BCCVL.

The Lancaster University workshop will give an overview and demonstration of the BCCVL and how it is used in research and decision-making for policy, government and industry users. It will explore some of the technical, support and training functions needed to successfully operate a virtual laboratory. The session will also provide a brief overview of virtual laboratories and other eResearch programs operating in Australia.

BCCVL provides modelling capability to more than 1,500 Australian researchers, industry professionals and students. It provides access to advanced best practice models, data and computational capacity that allows researchers, students and industry professionals to easily undertake complex modelling to understand the current and future environment.
