ACEnet is one of seven HPC consortia in Canada that, under the newly announced National Platform Fund (CFI) will share resources and collaborate on various research projects that would never be undertaken by a single entity. The other HPC networks in Canada are:
The Response of the Labrador Sea Environment to Global Climate Change
A research project to study the complex response of the Labrador Sea environment to global changes to estimate expected future effects of climate change in this region. With the goal of improving the capabilities of future operational short-term ocean predictions from weeks to months that will provide information that will contribute to extra security measures for the Canadian Coast Guard.
Optimizing Location-Aware Data Management for Location-Based Mobile Commerce
A research project to determine the transaction processing challenges in mobile commerce using location-aware data management practices to improve the level of transactional support provided by server-based informational resources to mobile users. The Genesis Group at MUN currently holds a US patent for the location-aware method.
Protein folding is a research project to understand the structure and reactions of molecules in the development of drugs and compounds.
A research project to understand and to develop new therapeutic applications of proteinmineralization. This project, by finding ways to manipulate the process of protein mineralization will affect the way treatment of health issues such as broken bones and strokes.
Study of star formation and feedback in high-redshift galaxies. This project involves simulation of large cosmological volumes using adaptive mesh refinement to resolve the interstellar medium in individual galaxies. The goal is to understand formation and evolution of young protogalaxies when the Universe was about 1-2 Gyrs old.
