About Cluster-sig

Open mailing list to allow staff in the University to discuss issues relating to the provision of IT Cluster Rooms for student use. The list supports the running of the Cluster Special Interest Group (SIG).

Topics for discussion include installation, maintenance and upgrading of clusters, funding, provision of software and the ISS desktop, cluster booking procedures, acceptable use policies, and cluster provision strategy.

Cluster SIG will usually deal with issues surrounding ISS Clusters, but the discussions are limited by this.

Any queries about the Cluster Special Interest Group should be directed to Basem El-Haddedeh ( or Nick Cook (
