Announcement - DOE accepting proposals until July 1 for use of supercomputing resources through INCITE program

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced April 16 it is accepting proposals for a program to support high-impact scientific advances through the use of some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers located at DOE national laboratories.  Approximately 1.3 billion supercomputer processor-hours will be awarded in 2010 through the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program for large-scale, computationally intensive projects addressing some of the toughest challenges in science and engineering.

“The INCITE program is instrumental in driving America’s leadership in science, which is vital for our economic prosperity, energy security and global competitiveness,” said Michael Strayer, DOE Associate Director of Science for Advanced Scientific Computing Research.  “INCITE provides access to unprecedented computing power and resources that will enable researchers to attack some of the most challenging problems in basic sciences through advanced simulation and modeling, which can reduce time-to-market and prototyping costs.”

INCITE awards will go to researchers whose projects would not be possible or productive without the petascale (quadrillion calculations per second) computing and computational support available at DOE leadership-class supercomputing facilities at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

The number of processor hours available through INCITE will almost double in 2010 due to recent upgrades that have expanded capacity at both DOE leadership-computing facilities, which house the IBM Blue Gene/P system at Argonne and the Cray XT system at Oak Ridge.

Proposals will be peer-reviewed for:  scientific merit, suitability of algorithms to perform well on a system’s architecture, and computational readiness of a code to make effective use of the system by using a majority of its processors in a single run.  Applicants can request allocations for one to three years.  Current DOE sponsorship is not required for this program.  Details are available in the Call for Proposals.  Researchers may submit INCITE proposals until July 1.  Award recipients are expected to be announced in November.
