2016 INCITE Call for Proposals is Open Now

The 2016 INCITE Call for Proposals is open April 15 through June 26, 2015.

Open to US- and non-US-based researchers, the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now accepting proposals for large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address grand challenges in science and engineering.

The 2016 INCITE Call for Proposals provides an opportunity for researchers to make transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of compute time on Mira, the IBM Blue Gene/Q at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, and Titan, the Cray XK7 at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. INCITE will allocate approximately 5.8 billion core-hours on these DOE leadership-class supercomputers in 2016.

For more information on the INCITE program and links to the proposal form, see www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/. We encourage you to consider responding to the Request for Information and participating in an upcoming INCITE Proposal Writing Webinar (see below).

Request for Information: We invite prospective INCITE proposal authors to respond to a Request for Information to inform INCITE management of expected proposal topics. See http://proposals.doeleadershipcomputing.org/allocations/incite/. The information requested 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 Webinar May 27th: In preparation for the call for proposals, the INCITE program invites you to participate in an INCITE Proposal Writing Webinar, offered on May 27, 2015. Free and open to the public, the webinar will provide both prospective and returning users the opportunity to get specific answers to questions about how to write an effective INCITE proposal. The INCITE Program Manager and each of the two Leadership Computing Facility centers will present. The webinar will run approximately 1.5 hours. See http://www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/2016-incite-proposal-writing-webinar/ for registration.

Early Access: Director’s Discretionary requests for limited early access to Mira and Titan can be submitted any time. Authors often use this access to generate benchmarking data in preparation for the INCITE call for proposals. See the Related Links at www.doeleadershipcomputing.org/contact/ for contacts.
