Call for Proposals: NERSC Exascale Science Application Program

June 5, 2014 by Francesca Verdier

NERSC is now accepting applications for the NERSC Exascale Science Application Program (NESAP).  Through NESAP, NERSC will partner with approximately 20 application teams to help prepare codes for the Cori architecture.  A key feature of the Cori system is the Intel Knights Landing processor which will have over 60 cores per node with multiple hardware threads on each core, and will also include high bandwidth, on-package memory.  The program will partner application teams with resources at NERSC, Cray, and Intel, and will last through the acceptance of the Cori system.
