inciteThe U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science has announced that 59 projects that will share nearly 6 billion core hours on two of America’s fastest supercomputers dedicated to open science, promising to accelerate scientific discovery and innovation. Their work will advance knowledge in many critical areas, from sustainable energy technologies to the environmental consequences of energy use.

The allocations come from the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment, or INCITE, program. Through it, the world’s most advanced computational research projects from academia, government and industry are given access to the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge leadership computing facilities and Argonne national laboratories.

The INCITE program addresses the largest, most computationally pressing projects in science and engineering,” said Michael Papka, director of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF). “These allocations enable state-of-the-art science in a wide range of domains.”
