The use of High-Performance Computing (HPC) has become vital not only in computer science but also in many scientific areas ranging from Covid-19 studies to space sciences. Thus, although HPC is at the heart of many small and large-scale collaborations, its relationship with collaboration is quite limited in the literature. The studies mainly focused on HPC return on investment. In this thesis, collaboration in studies using HPC is investigated from the researcher's perspective using HPC. The study is carried out specifically in Turkey to answer the following question: : “How should Turkey form its HPC environment regarding collaborative research?” Qualitative approach is employed collecting data through interviews with the researchers affiliated with Turkish universities. According to the findings, scarcity of resources, lack of personnel, and technical inadequacies in Turkey stand out. In addition to all these shortcomings, the lack of communication channels undermines collaboration most notably. In the light of these results, a structure under the roof of a common platform is proposed as a policy proposal. This structure is expected to support the collaboration of scientists using HPC in Turkey.

Enabling Grids for E-sciencE III (EGEE-III)
Şener, Cevat(2010-4-30)
A globally distributed computing Grid now plays an essential role for large-scale, data intensive science in many fields of research. The concept has been proven viable through the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project (EGEE and EGEE-II, 2004-2008) and its related projects. EGEE-II is consolidating the operations and middleware of this Grid for use by a wide range of scientific communities, such as astrophysics, computational chemistry, earth and life sciences, fusion and particle physics. Strong quality ass...
DEVELOPMENT OF SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE: A SYSTEMATIC MAPPING, A BIBLIOMETRICS STUDY, AND A PAPER REPOSITORY
Farhoodi, Roshanak; Garousi, Vahid; Pfahl, Dietmar; Sillito, Jonathan (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2013-05-01)
Scientific and engineering research is heavily dependent on effective development and use of software artifacts. Many of these artifacts are produced by the scientists themselves, rather than by trained software engineers. To address the challenges in this area, a research community often referred to as "Development of Scientific Software" has emerged in the last few decades. As this research area has matured, there has been a sharp increase in the number of papers and results made available, and it has thu...
Connecting the data landscape of long-term ecological studies: The SPI-Birds data hub
Culina, Antica; et. al. (Wiley, 2020-12-01)
The integration and synthesis of the data in different areas of science is drastically slowed and hindered by a lack of standards and networking programmes. Long-term studies of individually marked animals are not an exception. These studies are especially important as instrumental for understanding evolutionary and ecological processes in the wild. Furthermore, their number and global distribution provides a unique opportunity to assess the generality of patterns and to address broad-scale global issues (e...
Optimization and dynamics of gene-environment networks with intervals
Uğur, Ömür (2007-05-01)
There are a few areas of science and technology which are only as challenging, emerging and promising as computational biology. This area is looking for its mathematical foundations, for methods of prediction while guaranteeing robustness, and it is of a rigorous interdisciplinary nature. In this paper, we deepen and extend the approach of learning gene-expression patterns in the framework of gene-environment networks by optimization, especially, generalized semi-infinite optimization (GSIP). With respect t...
Toward a new understanding of virtual research collaborations: Complex adaptive systems framework
Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur (2013-01-01)
Virtual research collaborations (VRCs) have become an important method of conducting scientific activity; however, they are often regarded and treated as traditional scientific collaborations. Their success is measured by scholarly productivity and adherence to budget by funding agencies, participating scientists, and scholars. VRCs operate in complex environments interacting with other complex systems. A holistic (or organicist) approach is needed to make sense of this complexity. For that purpose, this st...
