5/7/14 - INCITE program soliciting proposals for time on leadership petascale computers

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science provides a portfolio of high-performance computing facilities housing some of the world’s most advanced supercomputers. These leadership computing facilities enable world-class research for significant advances in science. Time is granted through a competitive, peer-review process.

Open to researchers in academia, national labs and industry, the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now accepting proposals for large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address grand challenges in science and engineering.

The 2015 INCITE Call for Proposals provides an opportunity for researchers to make transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of compute time on Mira, the 10-petaflop IBM Blue Gene/Q at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, and Titan, the 27-petaflop Cray XK7 at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. INCITE will allocate approximately 5.75 billion core-hours on these DOE leadership-class supercomputers in 2015.

The call closes June 27.

Request for information

Prospective INCITE-proposal principal investigators are invited to respond by to a request for information to inform the INCITE management of the proposal topics anticipated. See for details.

The information requested here is not a prerequisite for proposal submittal, nor will it limit any requests you may decide to make in your INCITE proposal. However, you are encouraged to respond if you are contemplating submitting an INCITE proposal.

INCITE proposal writing webinars May 15

To help you prepare an INCITE proposal or to learn more about the program, an INCITE proposal writing webinar will be offered on May 15. The 1.5 hour webinar will also include discussion on the Director’s Discretionary Program, a way to request early access to port, tune and scale your codes in preparation for an INCITE application.
