SPARC2 White Paper for Compute Canada

CSDH-SCHN has prepared a response to Compute Canada’s SPARC2 “consultation process to gather feedback from users and researchers on the types of investment required to enable Canada’s excellence and leadership in science and innovation,” and to consult in particular on needs over the next five years. Under the leadership of Dr. Constance Crompton, input was solicited from researchers across Canada, and a second white paper, building on our initial 2014 SPARC White Paper, was produced.

The white paper addresses staffing and training; allocation processes; and sustainability, data management, and long-term storage.
