WestGrid is a computing resource shared by western Canadian universities. We use WestGrid for computationally intensive simulations. The large number of processors available often reduces simulation run-time considerably.

In order to use WestGrid you need an account. To create an account follow the steps on this page:

Note

When prompted to select an institution, choose WestGrid: University of British Columbia.

If you are creating an account as a sponsored user ask your supervisor for their CCRI code.
