DOE logoThe ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge has issued its Call for Proposals for 2014. Last year, 39 awards were allocated totaling 1.8 billion processor hours.

The mission of the ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) is to provide an allocation program for projects of interest to the Department of Energy with an emphasis on high-risk, high-payoff simulations in areas directly related to the DOE mission and for broadening the community of researchers capable of using leadership computing resources.

Open to scientists from the research community in industry, academia, and national laboratories, the ALCC program allocates up to 30% of the computational resources at ASCR’s supercomputing facilities. ASCR supercomputing facilities include NERSC at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Leadership Computing Facilities at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. These resources represent some of the world’s fastest and most powerful supercomputers.

Proposals for 2014 ALCC are due by February 3rd, 2014. Read the Full Story.
