Polaris was conceived as a facility for research in computational modeling of cognition and cognitive neuroscience. It is intended to provide CLLRNet researchers and their affiliates with a cost-effective entry-point into computational modeling techniques. The facility also serves as a mechanism for giving CLLRNet researchers access to the necessary software, hardware and personnel for developing computational modeling components to their research programmes.

Access to Polaris is provided free of charge to CLLRNet researchers. We are also interested in providing access to other researchers and commercial users. Please contact us if you would like access to the cluster.
