Transitioning from desktop/laptop computing to high-performance computing may not be trivial for many researchers. The RCC scientific computing group provides one-on-one consulting and technical user support in the areas of scripting, code porting, optimization, parallelization, and more. User support is available by e-mail, over the phone at 773.795.COMP (2667), in our walk-in-lab located in Suite 216 on the second floor of the Regenstein Library between 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, or by filling out the form below.  You may also consult RCC's online User Guide.

The RCC walk-in lab was opened to the public at the beginning of 2014 to offer in-person consultation and support to researchers. The lab has few Linux workstations available for researchers' use that provide direct access to the RCC software, storage, and compute nodes. Working from these machines is similar to working directly on the Midway high-performance cluster, but without the need to use remote-access tools.

The RCC also provides visualization consulting to users who want to explore and present their research graphically. Check out the visualization page and contact us to find out more.

If the needs of your project or group exceeds what can reasonably be provided by basic user support, you may benefit from the Consultant Partnership Program.
