All computational researchers (faculty, students, and staff) affiliated with the University are encouraged to take advantage of the Center's resources in order to advance their research. Two key steps are needed in order to begin using Center supercomputers, clusters, or research storage systems.  The first is the completion of an online Project Request by a faculty member (PI).  

Upon Project approval by the Center, all users under the Project must separately complete an online Account Request.  Each Account Request will trigger an email to the Project PI requesting yes/no authorization to create the account.  Once approved by the PI, CARC technical staff will create the account and notify the user to pick up their login and password information in person at the Center.  This will require a UNM or other official ID.

Please refer to the CARC QuickBytes, which provide brief technical summaries to assist users in setting up their computational environment, using parallel software, compilers, Matlab, remote GUIs, etc.  If you require additional assistance or have a question not covered by the “QuickBytes,” please submit a help request to help@carc.unm.edu or via the web form; see “QuickByte #15: How to Write a Great Help Ticket” for more information.  If you have a suggestion for a new "QuickByte" that you would like us to add, please draft and submit it (or request it) via our comment form.

The Center offers an "Intro to Computing at CARC" workshop on a rolling basis, based on user demand.  See Workshops, Training, & Courses at CARC for upcoming dates, or email workshops@carc.unm.edu to sign up for a future workshop.
