Each year, the DoE Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program promotes transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of time on state-of-the-art supercomputers. To date, the program has awarded a combined 4.7 billion supercomputing core hours to 61 science and engineering projects with high potential for accelerating discovery and innovation.

Supercomputing is essential to solving our greatest scientific and technological challenges and improving our economic prosperity, energy security, and global competitiveness,” said James Hack, director of the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS), which houses the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. “Simulations that exploit massive parallelism play a critical role in building our future. Today’s awards will speed insights into the natural world from subatomic particles to earthquakes to supernovae, and the engineered world from cars and concrete to catalysts and computer chips.”

Through aggregated resources at Argonne and Oak Ridge national laboratories, researchers will gain access to some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to address grand challenges from advancing sustainable energy to understanding environmental consequences of energy use.
