PRACE DECI-11 (Tier-1) Call announcement

This Call invites proposals for project access to Tier-1 resources, via DECI, the Distributed European Computing Initiative, providing single project cross-national access to national (Tier-1) HPC-resources.

DECI  enables European researchers to obtain access to the most powerful national (Tier-1) computing resources in Europe regardless of their country of origin or employment and to enhance the impact of European science and technology at the highest level. Proposals must deal with complex, demanding, innovative simulations that would not be possible without Tier-1 access.

Please note that, in addition to offering access to computing resources, applications-enabling and porting, assistance from experts at the leading European HPC centres is offered (on request and depending on availability) to enable projects to be run on the most appropriate Tier-1 platforms in PRACE.

Tier-1 machines available:

IBM Blue Gene/Q, Cray XE/XC, and a range of large clusters including GPU resources made available from Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, The Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Turkey and United Kingdom.
