Teragrid Time Application Deadline Looms


Scientists, engineers, and other U.S. researchers may apply until January 15, 2011 (12:00 midnight submitter’s local time) for the next quarterly review of requests for free allocations of high-performance computer time, advanced user support, data, and visualization resources that are available through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Cyberinfrastructure’s (OCI) TeraGrid. To apply for an allocation of any size, please visit TeraGrid’s online submission system: https://pops-submit.teragrid.org/.

Each quarter, a panel of computational experts known as the TeraGrid Resource Allocations Committee (TRAC) evaluates requests primarily on the appropriateness and technical aspects of using TeraGrid resources. Applications received by the January 15 deadline will be considered at the March 2011 TRAC meeting and awards will be available April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012. Multi-year allocations may be requested with an appropriate justification for use over an extended period of time.

TeraGrid allocates more than 1.5 billion processor hours to meritorious requests each year. Resources currently exceed 2.5 petaflops of combined computing capability and approximately 50 petabytes of online and archival data storage from 11 resource provider sites across the nation. At the December 2010 TRAC, 125 requests for computational time and storage were reviewed, and 290 million service units of computational time were awarded.
