One million for the arts

CPU hours, that is. From a release posted at HPCwire earlier this week:

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in collaboration with the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) will provide 1 million hours of time on NCSA’s supercomputers to researchers who are pushing the boundaries of humanities, arts and social science knowledge discovery.

Applications are now being accepted at http://nucri.nu.edu/bluerain. The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. CST on Friday, March 13. Applicants will be notified by April 1, 2009. A complete description of the application process and required materials is available online at http://www.chass.uiuc.edu/Guidelines.html.

If you are interested in HPC in the humanities, I wrote a feature article for HPCwire back in May of last year that may add a little context for youj.

  1. I appreciate the endeavor taken by The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) for people making attempts to re define boundaries of humanities, arts and social science knowledge discovery.
