NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

2014 Call for NERSC Initiative for Scientific Exploration (NISE) Program Due December 8

November 18, 2013 by Francesca Verdier

Users may now submit requests for the 2014 NERSC Initiative for Scientific Exploration (NISE) program.  The deadline to apply is Sunday December 8, 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

The goals for this program in 2014 are:

  • HPC and data analysis: Projects that leverage extreme scale parallel computing to solve big data analysis challenges.
  • Highly collaborative HPC: Projects that join community teams, knowledge bases or gateways with NERSC computing and data capabilities.
  • Extreme networking: Large-scale computing projects that leverage NERSC's 100GB border network connectivity.

About 100 million MPP hours will be available to allocate. Awards will be for the 2014 allocation year (January 14, 2014 - January 12, 2015). To apply fill out a 2014 request using the NERSC Information Management (NIM) system; the instructions are at 2014 ERCAP allocation request form. In the Project Overview section select "NISE project" for Project Class, and in the Resources Requested section select "NISE Awards" as the MPP Allocation Type. Please address one or more of the 2014 NISE program goals in the Project Description section - Project Overview. You may also attach a PDF with a longer description if you wish.
