upcoming DOE-INCITE call for proposals

Filed under: Events — admin @ 2:34 pm

The ORAU University Partnerships Office is pleased to provide the information below regarding a program available to all institutions. This notice is a service to ORAU Sponsoring and Associate Institutions. Please forward within your institution and broadly to colleagues as you feel appropriate.

Dear Colleagues:

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science provides a portfolio of national 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. Open to researchers from academia, government labs, and industry, the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) Program is the major means by which the scientific community gains access to some of the fastest supercomputers. The program aims to accelerate scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering.

The 2013 INCITE Call for Proposals opens April 11, 2012 and closes June 27, 2012. To help you prepare an INCITE proposal or to learn more about the program, two INCITE Proposal Writing Webinars will be offered on March 26, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. EDT, and on April 24, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The 1.5 hour webinars 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. The 2013 INCITE Call for Proposals is for awards of compute time on the Cray XK6 (Titan) system at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility and the IBM Blue Gene/P (Intrepid) and IBM Blue Gene/Q (Mira) systems at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility.
For more details and early registration for these events, see for the March 26th event and for the April 24th event. For more information on the INCITE Program web site, see Specific questions should be addressed to the INCITE Program Manager, Julia White, at
