OutlineThe Joint Usage/Research Center for Interdisciplinary Large-scale Information Infrastructures (hereafter as JHPCN) is the network-type joint usage and research center, certified by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, on the basis of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the School Education Act. The joint usage and research center aims to make the most use of the potential that universities have for the research to produce a system which offers chances of joint research for researchers. It is made up of institutions with large-scale computing system (hereafter called member institutions) affiliated with Hokkaido University, Tohoku University, University of Tokyo, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Nagoya University, Kyoto University, Osaka University, and Kyushu University, and the center promotes joint usage by providing the computer resources of the member institutions and joint research by introducing researchers of each member institution to help the development of researches in many fields.
JHPCN calls for joint research projects for fiscal year 2023. The joint research has to have two or more research members and be managed by a researcher of organizations in Japan. You have to use at least one of the computer resources of the member institutions or have a researcher of the member institutions in the research group. Projects are welcome from any research area.
The researchers of accepted projects will be able to use the computer resources of the member institutions and the “mdx” for free in the scope of the rule. (See Appendixes for the details of available resources) The “mdx” is an information infrastructure created mainly to accumulate and utilize knowledge related to data science, which is comanaged by nine universities and 2 research institutions, within which the member institutions are included. There are cases where the expenses for publishing research results are supported, for example, the travel expenses to join conferences in abroad, the expenses to publish books on research results and to hold symposiums related to the research. Accepted research projects will also be a chance to make networks or expand your research/invention by joining or doing presentations in JHPCN symposiums.
Since the member institutions have enrolled leading researchers, acceleration of joint research projects is possible through collaboration with these researchers. You can get introductions to the researchers of the member institutions, if you hope to, please contact the JHPCN office in advance. If you have in mind a researcher with whom you want to conduct joint research, you can ask the member institution of the researcher in question.
These joint research projects for the fiscal year 2023 will be implemented from April 2023 to March 2024. The web application deadline is 5 PM (JST), 6 January, 2023. We expect and appreciate as many applications as possible.
