The Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputacion (BSC - CNS) is the Spanish National Supercomputing Center. Established in 2005, it has inherited all the tradition of CEPBA (European Center for Parallelism of Barcelona) and hosts MareNostrum, the most powerful supercomputer in Europe and fifth most powerful in the world according to the Linpack benchmark (June 2005). The mission of BSC - CNS is to investigate, develop and manage information technology in order to facilitate scientific progress.
BCS - CNS' aim is to become a research center in supercomputing (with specific emphasis in Deep Computing and Computer Architecture) as well as in additional eScience fields that demand high performance computing resources such as Life Sciences and Earth Sciences. Following this multidisciplinary approach, BSC - CNS brings together a critical mass of researchers, high performance computing experts and cutting-edge supercomputing technologies in order to foster scientific progress.
Would you like to use MareNostrum, the first supercomputer in Europe?
BSC - CNS is giving the worldwide scientific community the opportunity to use its high performance computing resources. BSC - CNS is looking for Grand Challenge proposals to use its resources. Due to its level of research experience in Deep Computing, BSC will guarantee to improve the performance of the selected applications.
-- Grand Challenge of international scientific interest
-- Highly scalable applications (thousands of processors)
All candidates will be evaluated and prioritized by the BSC Access Committee. Successful proposals will be informed and dealt accordingly. We kindly request you not send proposals that do not conform to the requirements mentioned above.
Submissions should be made via the online application form located at www.bsc.es/grandchallenge. Participants are encouraged to submit projects where BSC - CNS' resources and expertise help to accelerate relevant contributions to research areas where intensive computing is an enabling technology. The deadline for accepting proposals will be December 31, 2005.
