Over at the Cray Blog, NCCS Director of Science Jack Wells writes that the INCITE program is entering it eighth year enabling scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding supercomputing time.

Using one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world — “Titan,” a Cray XK7 system housed at Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) — researchers across the country devoted more than 1.94 billion processor hours to 32 computational research projects last year alone. Projects ranging from nuclear fusion to astrophysics occupied some of Titan’s computing capability, allowing for groundbreaking research in multiple disciplines.

Through June 27, INCITE’s open call for proposals provides an opportunity for researchers to make transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of computer time and supporting resources at ORNL and the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, operated by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
