Find out about an opportunity for researchers at the University of Florida to submit proposals for allocations on the NSF funded Blue Waters supercomputer.

The Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC) has been allocated 3.5 million node hours (equivalent to approximately 50 million core hours) annually as part of the Blue Waters project. This allocation provides the GLCPC member institutions with an unprecedented opportunity to advance their programs in computation, data, and visualization intensive research and education. This is a special allocations process managed by the GLCPC that awards time on the Blue Waters system outside the normal NSF Blue Waters Petascale Computing Resource Allocations (PRAC) process. As part of UF’s membership in the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA), which participates in the GLCPC, UF researchers are eligible to participate in this Call for Proposals (CFP).

Short, five-page proposals are due on Monday, November 16, 2015. For more information, the CFP document describes the complete process for submitting a proposal to the GLCPC Allocations Committee for allocations on the Blue Waters system.
