The Norwegian Academic HPC Services


The current Norwegian academic HPC infrastructure is maintained by an organization called the Metacenter, which is a joint collaboration between the four oldest Universities in Norway (UiO, UiB, NTNU and UiT) and Sigma2.

Acknowledging use of national HPC infrastructure

Projects are required to acknowledge the use of the national e-infrastructure resources in their scientific publications. Papers, presentations and other publications that feature work that relied on Sigma2 should include such an acknowledgement.

UNINETT Sigma2 has defined the following template for such acknowledgements:

The computations/simulations/[SIMILAR] were performed on resources provided by
UNINETT Sigma2 - the National Infrastructure for High Performance Computing and
Data Storage in Norway
