NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Call for Proposals: NERSC Initiative for Scientific Exploration - deadline is January 25

December 20, 2011 by Francesca Verdier

NERSC allocates 10% of the total MPP hours on our computational systems through the NERSC Initiative for Scientific Exploration (NISE) program. This year we expect to allocate about 100 million hours to a few large projects.

Users who wish to explore a new research area that requires a large amount of computational resources are encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in large scale and/or data intensive proposals.

The NISE award can last for one or two years. PIs granted NISE allocations will be expected to provide NERSC with a brief summary of results from their NISE project each year.

The application form can be found at:

The deadline to apply for the NISE award is January 25, 2012.
