2014 INCITE Call for Proposals


2014 INCITE Call for Proposals Opens April 15, Closes June 28, 2013

The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program promotes transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of computer time, supporting resources, and data storage at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) for computationally intensive, large-scale research projects.

INCITE is currently soliciting research proposals for awards of time on the 10-petaflops IBM Blue Gene/Q “Mira” and the 27-petaflops Cray XK7 “Titan” beginning Calendar Year (CY) 2014. Average awards per project for CY 2014 are expected to be on the order of tens to hundreds of millions of core-hours. Proposals may be for up to three years.

To submit an application, please visit http://proposals.doeleadershipcomputing.org for details about the proposal requirements. Applications will be accepted only electronically starting April 15, 2013. Proposals will be accepted until a call deadline of 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 28, 2013. Awards are expected to be announced in November 2013.

For more information on the INCITE Program, see http://www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/. Address specific questions to the INCITE Manager, Julia White, at incite@doeleadershipcomputing.org.

INCITE Request for Information

We encourage prospective INCITE-proposal PIs to respond to a Request for Information (RFI) to inform the INCITE management of the proposal topics anticipated. See http://hpc.science.doe.gov/allocations/incite/ for details. Completing the RFI is not a prerequisite for proposal submittal, nor will it limit any requests you may decide to make in your INCITE proposal.

INCITE Proposal Writing Webinars April 25th and May 14th

To help you prepare an INCITE proposal or to learn more about the program, two INCITE Proposal Writing Webinars will be held this year on April 25, at 3 p.m. CST, and on May 14, at 9 a.m. CST. Each 1.5 hour webinar will also include discussion on the Director's Discretionary Program, a way to obtain an allocation of hours to use in porting, tuning, and scaling your codes in preparation for an INCITE application. For details and registration information, see alcf.anl.gov/workshops/incite-2014-webinars.

INCITE Scaling Workshop May 21 - 24 at ALCF

Register to attend the Mira Performance Boot Camp (May 21 - 24). This scaling workshop will let you optimize your code for your highest performance numbers in preparation for INCITE. Participants will have access to the entire Mira system. For more information, visit www.alcf.anl.gov/workshops/mira-performance-boot-camp-2013.
