INCITE Seeking Proposals to Advance Science and Engineering at U.S. Leadership Computing Facilities

April 1, 2016

April 1 — The Department of Energy’s Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program will be accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains.

From April 13 to June 24, INCITE’s open call provides an opportunity for researchers to make transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of computer time and supporting resources at the Leadership Computing Facility (LCF) centers located at Oak Ridge and Argonne national laboratories. OLCF and ALCF are US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facilities.

The winning proposals will receive awards of time on Titan, the 27-petaflop Cray XK7 at Oak Ridge, and Mira, the 10-petaflop IBM Blue Gene/Q at Argonne. INCITE will allocate approximately 6 billion core-hours on these DOE leadership-class supercomputers in 2017, with average awards per project expected to be on the order of 75 million core-hours for Titan and 100 million core-hours for Mira. The largest allocations could be as much as several hundred million core-hours. Proposals may be for up to three years.

Open to researchers, the INCITE program seeks research proposals for capability computing: production simulations—including ensembles—that use a large fraction of the LCF systems or require the unique LCF architectural infrastructure for high-performance computing projects that cannot be performed anywhere else.

Applications undergo a two-phase review process to identify projects with the greatest potential for impact and a demonstrable need for leadership-class systems to deliver solutions to grand challenges.

To submit an application or for additional details about the proposal requirements, visit http://proposals.doeleadershipcomputing.org. Proposals will be accepted until the call deadline of 8:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 24, 2016. Awards are expected to be announced in November 2016.

The INCITE program, along with the two LCF centers, will host instructional proposal writing webinars on April 13 and on May 19.

For more information on the INCITE program and a list of previous awards, visit http://www.doeleadershipcomputing.org.

The Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit http://science.energy.gov/.
