Dear NERSC users,
January 16, 2018 by Brandon Cook
NERSC is seeking proposals to conduct high-impact science campaigns using NERSC’s Cori supercomputer at scale. Up to 600 million NERSC Hours in total for allocation year 2018 will be awarded to research teams addressing scientific problems that require the computing capability provided by Cori’s Xeon Phi “Knight’s Landing” (KNL) nodes. A successful proposal would require the use of at least 2,000 KNL nodes to solve a problem, with a preference for proposals that exploit Cori’s unique capabilities (e.g., using all or most of the 9,688 KNL nodes or making heavy use of the burst buffer). Previous awards were in the range of 10-100M NERSC hours. Data-intensive projects requiring large scale analytics (statistics, machine learning, deep learning) are encouraged to apply.
