PRACE: Results of the third Regular Call
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is offering super-
computing resources on the highest level
(Tier-0) to European researchers. The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) is currently dedicating shares of its IBM Blue Gene/P system JUGENE in Jülich and its Cray XE6 System HERMIT in Stuttgart.
The 3rd call for proposals, this time
for computing time on JUGENE in Jülich,
HERMIT in Stuttgart, and CURIE in Bruyères-Le-Châtel, France, closed on June 22, 2011. Ten research projects have been awarded about 360 Million compute core hours on JUGENE, and four have been awarded about 194 Million compute core hours on HERMIT. Three of those research projects are from Italy, two are from Germany and the UK, each, while one each are from Belgium, Cyprus, France, the Netherlands, Norway, and Spain. The research projects awarded computing time cover all scientific areas, from Astrophysics to Medicine and Life Sciences.
More details, also on the projects granted access to Curie, can be found via the PRACE web pages www.prace-ri.eu/PRACE-3rd-Regular-Call.
