NOVA Portal: Submit VASP Jobs to Carver via the Web

May 11, 2012 by Francesca Verdier

NOVA is an experimental web application that enables users to submit VASP jobs to NERSC resources. You must be a licensed VASP user in order to submit jobs through NOVA. This initial version of NOVA runs only on Carver.

Most input files can be prepared either by manipulating graphical controls, or by copying and pasting text and editing in the browser. NOVA currently does some helpful validation of text files as well as graphical input. We hope to provide many additional features, based on user feedback with this early system. Please contact Annette Greiner,, with NOVA specific questions.

NOVA is available at:  See for more information on using VASP with NOVA.
