US Researchers Can Now Apply to Use Blue Waters Supercomputer

Dec. 13 — The National Science Foundation has opened a call for requests for allocations on the Blue Waters supercomputer, a petascale system capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second and of working with massive amounts of data. Proposals are due by March 10.

The goal of this system, which is located at and supported by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is to open up new possibilities in science and engineering by providing computational capability that makes it possible for investigators to tackle much larger and more complex research challenges across a wide spectrum of domains.

Proposers must show a compelling science or engineering challenge that will require petascale computing resources and must also be prepared to demonstrate that they have a science or engineering research problem that requires and can effectively exploit the petascale computing  capabilities offered by Blue Waters.  Proposals from or including junior researchers are encouraged, as one of the goals of this solicitation is to build a community capable of using petascale computing.
