Computing Centre users

You may ask for a computing account at CC-IN2P3 if:

  • you are an IN2P3 or IRFU staff member. Your request will need to be validated by your laboratory director;

  • you work in collaboration with IN2P3 or IRFU staff members who are using CC-IN2P3 services and resources. Your request will need to be validated by the French experiment manager you work with, after acceptance by the IN2P3 management;

  • you work on activities outside the IN2P3/IRFU scope but hosted by CC-IN2P3.
