Sept. 16 -- Nine research projects, two from Germany, two from Spain and one each from France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Portugal and the UK, have been awarded access to the PRACE Research Infrastructure. In total 362.8 Million compute core hours were granted for the JUGENE, IBM BlueGene/P, hosted by the Gauss-Centre for Supercomputing member site in Jülich, Germany, which is the first Petascale HPC system available to researchers through PRACE.
59 applications requesting a total of 2,874 Million compute core hours were received in this call, which was the first regular call for one year allocation on PRACE resources.
The projects were chosen for their high level of scientific and technical maturity, and demonstrated need for Tier-0 resources. The projects are from the following scientific areas: chemistry and materials, medicine and life sciences, engineering and energy, and fundamental physics. All proposals underwent a peer review process including PRACE technical and scientific assessment.
The following nine projects were granted access to PRACE resources. More information on the projects is available at http://www.prace-project.eu/hpc-access/page-11/.
The 2nd PRACE regular call for one year allocation is currently open and will close on 11th January, 2011 for projects from all scientific areas. More information can be found at http://www.prace-project.eu/hpc-access/.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is an international nonprofit association with its seat in Brussels. The PRACE Research Infrastructure (RI) provides a persistent world-class High Performance Computing (HPC) service for scientists and researchers from academia and industry. The PRACE leadership systems form the apex of the performance pyramid and are well integrated into the European HPC ecosystem. The preparation and implementation of the PRACE RI receive EC funding under grants RI-211528 and FP7-261557.
