About ALCF

The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) provides supercomputing capabilities to the scientific and engineering community to advance fundamental discovery and understanding in a broad range of disciplines.

Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science, Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program, the ALCF is one of two DOE Leadership Computing Facilities in the nation dedicated to open science.

Available to researchers from universities, industry, and government agencies, the ALCF is a DOE Office of Science User Facility that helps accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation by providing supercomputing resources that are 10 to 100 times more powerful than systems typically used for scientific research.

Through substantial awards of supercomputing time and user support services, the ALCF enables large-scale modeling and simulation research aimed at solving some of the world’s largest and most complex problems in science and engineering.
