Priority Research Centre for Computer-Assisted
Overview of CARMA Facilities
CARMA is physically based in the Mathematics Building at the University of Newcastle. Our primary facilities include include two collaboration rooms (V206, the Access Grid Room, and V205, the Inner Sanctum).
Access Grid Room and Inner Sanctum
These two rooms are set up for both remote collaboration and local operations. Remote collaboration is undertaken primarily using the Access Grid, but also SeeVogh (the successor to EVO) and occasionally Skype. SeeVogh also provides bridges to h.323 ("traditional" videoconferencing such as Polycom and Tandberg installations) as well as telephone voice calls.
Locally, our researchers are supported by a Saeco "Odea Giro Plus" machine. Each room contains a wireless access point.
The Access Grid Room is set up with a more formal, classroom-style, layout, with seating for around 18 people, and is equipped with
The inner sanctum contains similar equipment, but uses two 46" and one 52" LCD screens with SMART touch overlays, as well as an XAP880 echo canceller. It also has numerous whiteboards, and a more casual, collaboration-inducing layout.
This equipment was installed in late 2007. Future upgrade paths would preferably include
V206 AV rack
CARMA has a number of high-performance computing facilities, including
Members, please see (and edit!) the CARMA Wiki for further details.
Examples of the types of computation that CARMA is involved in can be found in this paper: "Review of the SIAM Hundred Digit Challenge", prepared for the Mathematical Intelligencer.
