Computing Time Application for Large-Scale Projects at the GCS Petaflop Supercomputer HERMIT
The GCS Large-Scale call is open for project leaders, whose affiliation is in Germany (or is a foreign office of a German institution).
Interested researchers from abroad (within Europe) are invited
to apply via PRACE.
Project applications for HERMIT may be submitted by any scientist qualified in his or her respective field of research. Computing resources are allocated on the basis of independent referees' reports. Apart from the scientific relevance of the project, an important criterion for the allocation of computing resources is that the project can make efficient use of the computer and use a large number of processors in parallel for the simulations.
For technical information on HERMIT, see
Large-scale projects (16 Mill. core hours or more) are peer-reviewed by a committee of the GCS.
The deadline for the next application is 28 February 2013, 17:00.
Please, first prepare a detailed project description that you will have to upload to the electronic questionnaire as a pdf file.
Follow the guidelines about form, content and size of the project description. Take particular care that
If you wish to add supplemental material to the project description (unpublished manuscripts etc.), please collect that in a second pdf-file. Also this file you will have to upload to the electronic questionnaire.
- the estimate of the applied computing time is verifiable by the reviewer,
- a plot is supplied that shows the scalability of the program under
realistic production conditions, and that
- you provide information on computing projects and applications for
computing time you have with other supercomputing centres.
Please fill in the electronic questionnnaire completely and attach the project description and - if necessary - the supplemental material as pdf files.
Please make sure that your data are complete and check them.
Finally, please print the application form and send a signed paper copy to the address below:
