Researchers from Australian research organisations can get access to Pawsey visualisation resources. All users with supercomputing allocation to Magnus have access to Topaz RemoteVis and you don't need to fill-out any application. If you are looking to apply for Nebula or Pawsey Visualisation Lab, you can apply via Pawsey application portal. Login to Pawsey application portal using your AAF credentials and apply. If your institution is not listed in AAF Subscriber Institutions, you can create a login using your email address. 

This application should be submitted by the Principal Investigator (PI), who leads the research work and must be employed at an Australian university or research institution. Please note students can't directly apply for visualisation services, instead the application should be submitted by their supervisors.
