High-Impact Science at Scale on Cori
NERSC received a large number of responses to its Call of Proposals for High-Impact Science at Scale on Cori KNL nodes, which were reviewed for the ability to scale to 2,000 or more Cori KNL nodes, potential science impact, feasibility/risk, and appropriateness of approach and resources requested. Many proposals scored very highly in all these categories, but requests far exceeded the time available in the NERSC Director's Reserve to support this program. Eight awards were given, each with enough time to make significant progress in their research.
The following projects were awarded time through the program, which allocated a total of about 450 million NERSC Hours.
