The ALCF enables breakthroughs in science and engineering by providing supercomputing resources and expertise to the research community.
The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility accelerates major scientific discoveries and engineering breakthroughs by providing supercomputing resources and expertise to the research community.
Supported by the DOE's Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program, the ALCF and its partner organization, the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, operate leadership-class supercomputers that are orders of magnitude more powerful than the systems typically used for open science.
ALCF computing resources—available to researchers from academia, industry, and government agencies—support large-scale computing projects aimed at solving some of the the world's most complex and challenging scientific problems. Through awards of supercomputing time and support services, the ALCF enables its users to accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation across disciplines.
As a key player in the nation’s efforts to deliver future exascale computing capabilities, the ALCF is helping to advance scientific computing through a convergence of simulation, data science, and machine learning methods. The facility also provides training and expertise to prepare researchers for the next generation of leadership computing resources.
