INCITE Allocation Program

The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is the principal means by which the scientific community gains access to DOE's leadership-class supercomputers at the ALCF and OLCF.

Open to researchers from academia, government laboratories, and industry, the INCITE program aims to accelerate scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering.

INCITE proposals are accepted between mid-April and mid to late June. The program conducts a two-part review of all proposals: a peer review by an international panel of experts and a computational-readiness review.

The annual call for proposals is issued in April and the allocations are awarded for one to three years. For more details, visit the INCITE website.
