Oct. 8 -- Compute Canada has released its 2014 Call For Proposals for Principal Investigators (PIs) at Canadian academic institutions who require who require access to greater than the default usage level on any Compute Canada systems. Any individual who is eligible to apply to national granting councils for funding is eligible to apply for an allocation. All applicants must complete the online application form in the Compute Canada Database (CCDB).
This year, in order to reduce the amount of work required to apply for the same allocation that was awarded in 2013, Compute Canada has introduced a new process: the Fast-Track Application.
This process will be available for PIs with moderate-sized allocations, whose applications received better than average reviews from the Resource Allocation Committee and who used their allocation consistently with the award made. If this applies to your group, you will receive a letter explaining how to proceed.
Note that a proposal is not required in order to get access to Compute Canada systems. Any Canadian academic researcher may obtain the “default usage level” on any Compute Canada system at any time by registering with the CCDB and then requesting accounts at one or more consortia.
