2. Request an account
If you are a student or postdoc, have a faculty member (your supervisor) email a request to sponsor you for access to Plato. If you are a faculty member, email Research Computing.
Include the NSID of the person(s) who will use the machine.
Briefly outline the computational work you wish to perform and your technical requirements, such as CPU, GPU, memory, storage, software. If you are unsure about some or all of your technical requirements, please say so.
3. Get started on the machine
Once your account has been created, you should read our getting started guide. It will give you basic information for accessing and using the cluster, and will point you to the more extensive, technical documentation you will require to make full use of Plato.
4. Keep track of published work done using Plato
By abiding by these terms, you help us demonstrate to funding organisations the value that Plato has for the research community at the University.
