The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, a peak publicly funded high performance computing (HPC) facility in Australia, is accelerating scientific outcomes for researchers across the nation. The Centre is focused on providing integrated research solutions by giving simultaneous access to world class expertise and infrastructure in supercomputing, data, and visualisation services to the research, education and industrial communities.

Pawsey enables over 80 organisations, and more than 1600 researchers to achieve unprecedented results in domains such as radio astronomy, energy and resources, engineering, bioinformatics, health sciences and agriculture among others. The Centre will also underpin the operations of the Square Kilometre Array.

Located in Perth, Western Australia, The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is an unincorporated joint venture between CSIRO, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University and The University of Western Australia and is supported by the Western Australian and Federal Governments.

As well as providing access to infrastructure and expertise for Data Intensive science, the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre holds seminars and symposia on data, visualisation and supercomputing, and provides support to students and industry personnel, researchers, academics and scientists through training, internships and workshops on advanced computing. These services assist researchers to upscale their ambitions and understand how a petascale systems enable them to consider a new class of problem.
