INCITE Awards HPC Time to 51 Research Projects on ORNL, Argonne Supercomputers

  The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science announced allocations of supercomputer access to 51 high-impact computational science projects for 2021 through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program. These awards, which will pursue transformational advances in science and engineering, account for 60 percent of the available time on the leadership-class supercomputers at DOE’s Argonne National […]

Supercomputing the San Andreas Fault with CyberShake

With help from DOE supercomputers, a USC-led team expands models of the fault system beneath its feet, aiming to predict its outbursts. For their 2020 INCITE work, SCEC scientists and programmers will have access to 500,000 node hours on Argonne’s Theta supercomputer, delivering as much as 11.69 petaflops. “The team is using Theta “mostly for dynamic earthquake ruptures,” Goulet says. “That is using physics-based models to simulate and understand details of the earthquake as it ruptures along a fault, including how the rupture speed and the stress along the fault plane changes.”

DOE INCITE program seeks proposals for 2021

The DOE INCITE program has issued its Call for Proposals. “Open to researchers from academia, industry and government agencies, the INCITE program is aimed at large-scale scientific computing projects that require the power and scale of DOE’s leadership-class supercomputers. The program will award up to 60 percent of the allocable time on Summit, the OLCF’s 200-petaflop IBM AC922 machine, and Theta, the ALCF’s 12-petaflop Cray XC40 system.”

GE Research Leverages World’s Top Supercomputer to Boost Jet Engine Efficiency

GE Research has been awarded access to the world’s #1-ranked supercomputer to discover new ways to optimize the efficiency of jet engines and power generation equipment. Michal Osusky, the project’s leader from GE Research’s Thermosciences group, says access to the supercomputer and support team at OLCF will greatly accelerate learning insights for turbomachinery design improvements that lead to more efficient jet engines and power generation assets, stating, “We’re able to conduct experiments at unprecedented levels of speed, depth and specificity that allow us to perceive previously unobservable phenomena in how complex industrial systems operate. Through these studies, we hope to innovate new designs that enable us to propel the state of the art in turbomachinery efficiency and performance.”

DOE INCITE Program Seeks Advanced Computational Research Proposals for 2019

The DOE Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now seeking proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains. “From April 16 to June 22, 2018, INCITE’s open call provides an opportunity for researchers to pursue transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of computer time and supporting resources at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). The ALCF and OLCF are DOE Office of Science User Facilities. Open to researchers from academia, industry and government agencies, the INCITE program will award 50 percent of the allocable time on DOE’s leadership-class supercomputers: the ALCF’s Mira and Theta systems and the OLCF’s Summit and Titan systems.”

DOE’s INCITE Program Seeks Advanced Computational Research Proposals for 2018

Today the Department of Energy’s Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program announced it is accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering, and computer science domains. DOE’s Office of Science plans to award over 6 billion supercomputer processor-hours at Argonne National Laboratory and […]

Video: Stunning Simulation from Blue Brain Project at SC16

In this silent video from the Blue Brain Project at SC16, 865 segments from a rodent brain are simulated with isosurfaces generated from Allen Brain Atlas image stacks. For this INCITE project, researchers from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne will use the Mira supercomputer at Argonne to advance the understanding of these fundamental mechanisms of the brain’s neocortex.

Princeton Plasma Physics Lab Wins 80 Million Processor Hours on Titan Supercomputer

The U.S Department of Energy has awarded a total of 80 million processor hours on Titan supercomputer to an astrophysical project based at the DOE’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). The grants will enable researchers to study the dynamics of magnetic fields in the high-energy density plasmas that lasers create. Such plasmas can closely approximate those that occur in some astrophysical objects.
