Annual Report

I understand that as a condition of continued access to RCS resources, I will submit a brief annual report on this project describing research objectives, computational methodology, current results and significance. This report shall include references to all publications (per: Credit paragraph below).

The following paragraphs apply to all users:

RCS Account Policies

I acknowledge personal responsibility for my account credentials and understand that I am responsible for their security. I will protect my account from misuse. I will not share my account or its credentials with anyone for any reason. I hereby attest that I have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the rules, policies, and procedures regarding my access to RCS resources. I agree to report to RCS any problems I encounter while using RCS systems, or any misuse of accounts or passwords by other persons which may occur and come to my knowledge. I understand that RCS will investigate each incident.

Restrictions and Auditing

I will not execute, copy or store copyrighted or proprietary software or information on RCS systems without proper authorization. I understand that I am not allowed to process sensitive or classified information on RCS resources. I understand that as a user of RCS systems, my activities are audited and that misuse of RCS resources may result in disciplinary action and/or revocation of current, or denial of future computing privileges.

Credit

I agree to include the acknowledgement found at http://www.gi.alaska.edu/research-computing-systems/citing in any publications that result from research supported by this grant. I will submit a copy of each of these publications to RCS (the copies can be included with the annual report).

Availability

I understand that RCS makes a reasonable attempt to ensure the availability and integrity of my data and software through regular on-site backups of my home directory. RCS does not maintain off-site backups of user data and I agree to assume all responsibility for the risk of loss of my data and software--regardless of the cause of that loss. I understand that RCS makes a reasonable attempt to ensure the availability of its HPC resources and that periodically, any or all of these systems may go down for scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. I agree that it is my responsibility to ensure the recoverability of my data, wherever feasible, should any of my jobs be unexpectedly restarted or lost due to a downtime.

By submitting this form, you agree to the above terms and conditions.
