NCAR's Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) invites NSF-supported university researchers in the atmospheric, oceanic, and related sciences to submit large allocation requests for the Yellowstone system by April 7, 2014. All requesters are strongly encouraged to review the instructions at https://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/chap before preparing their submissions.
For the Yellowstone system, computational requests greater than 200,000 core-hours are considered "large." Smaller requests for up to 200,000 core-hours are accepted any time and are typically reviewed within two business days; visit the allocations web page for details.
The large requests will be reviewed by the CISL High-performance computing Allocations Panel (CHAP), and there must be a direct linkage between the researcher's NSF award and the computational research being proposed. Visit http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/allocations/university for more university allocation instructions and opportunities.
Note that CISL is also accepting submissions for Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) projects (www2.cisl.ucar.edu/csl) with a March 24 deadline. Both opportunities are open to eligible university researchers, but in general interested groups should apply to only one opportunity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions regarding the two opportunities.
Allocations will be made on Yellowstone, NCAR's 1.5-petaflops IBM iDataPlex system, the data analysis and visualization clusters (Geyser and Caldera), the 11-PB GLADE disk resource, and the HPSS archive. See https://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/resources/yellowstone for more system details.
