The purpose of this service is to offer CIF users access to a remote image processing workstation for their imaging needs.

  2. Book the workstation using the booking system below (see remarks)
  3. Then connect to the remote workstation like you would with any other UNIL machine. (see remarks)


  • For detailed instructions, please follow instructions available in our wiki here :
  • Make sure to use the correct machine name (as mentioned in the booking system) e.g.
  • If you try to use the machine while someone else is still using it, you will have to wait for his/her approval (the user will see a dialog box). If there is no feedback, this user’s session will be closed automatically after a few seconds and you will be able to open a session.


The system is completely reset after each reboot, so do NOT leave any data on the machine.
