NERSC Accepting NESAP for Workflows Applications

September 11, 2023

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center is now accepting applications from NERSC projects for the NERSC Science Acceleration Program (NESAP) for Workflows. Chosen teams will work with NERSC for one year to prepare for and better utilize advanced workflow capabilities such as hardware acceleration, reconfigurable storage, advanced scheduling, and integration with edge services, as well as alignment with the Integrated Research Infrastructure (IRI) initiative. Applications will remain open through October 2.

Future machines at NERSC will offer a broad range of capabilities and NERSC is interested in working with all aspects of scientific workflows on the system including simulation performance, data movement and management, application of machine learning, organization and composition of complex computational tasks, interaction with external resources beyond the NERSC data center (e.g. edge, cloud, and cross-facility). NERSC will partner with science teams to prepare for and better utilize advanced work capabilities such as hardware acceleration, reconfigurable storage, advanced scheduling, and integration with edge service.

Please note that current NESAP for Perlmutter projects, except the recent NESAP for Learning projects, will not be automatically carried over to calendar year 2024. Therefore it's strongly recommended that those projects submit an application.


About NERSC and Berkeley Lab
The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility that serves as the primary high-performance computing center for scientific research sponsored by the Office of Science. Located at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the NERSC Center serves almost 10,000 scientists at national laboratories and universities researching a wide range of problems in climate, fusion energy, materials science, physics, chemistry, computational biology, and other disciplines. Berkeley Lab is a DOE national laboratory located in Berkeley, California. It conducts unclassified scientific research and is managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy. »Learn more about computing sciences at Berkeley Lab.
