Request an account form

As “Project ID” put the project code (eg. lspre100s1) corresponding to your application submission. For the educational access projects as “Project ID” type “Educational Access”. You will then be contacted by the user support team to provide your public key.

Users who already have an account on the system, need to resubmit the above form, for the administrators to assign their existing account with the new project. 

If you need instructions on how to generate a public key, please visit the Documentation page.

Please note:
– You will not be granted a user account on a HPC resource if you have not completed this form.
– Each accepted project is allocated a specific HPC site, you will only be allowed access to your projects allocated site(s)
– You will not be granted access unless you are registered as a collaborator in an accepted production or preparatory project or as a professor/student in an educational access project. Additional collaborators (not registered in the original proposal) can only be registered by the project leader by contacting castorc.support@cyi.ac.cy
– If you are permitted access to more than one HPC resource you will have to complete the form for each permitted site – each time choosing the appropriate (and different) HPC resource you are entitled to use.
Once the above has been done, you will be contacted by the HPC site to request your ssh public key.
