Kompetenznetzwerk für wissenschaftliches Höchstleistungsrechnen in Bayern



The DEISA Consortium has issued the fifth DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative (DECI) call for proposals. The deadline of this call is on 4 May 2009. DECI is a scheme through which European computational scientists can apply for single-project access to world-leading computational resources in the European HPC infrastructure for a period of up to 12 months. DECI aims to enable European researchers to obtain access to the most powerful national computing resources in Europe, regardless of their country of origin or work and to enhance DEISA’s impact on European science and technology at the highest level. In addition to offering access to computing resources, DEISA offers applications-enabling assistance from experts at the leading European HPC centres to faciliate the running of projects on the most appropriate platforms in the DEISA consortium. Projects supported by DECI will be chosen on the basis of innovation potential, scientific excellence and relevance criteria. Priority will be given to proposals that promote collaborative research, either at a cross- national or cross-disciplinary level. Further, proposals from principle investigators (PIs) that have yet to benefit from DECI compute and applications enabling resources may be given preference. Proposals selected under this call will be given access to the infrastructure for applications enabling from 1 October 2009 and for production runs from 1 November 2009 to 30 September 2010. To answer the call, please contact the DEISA support team at LRZ (deisa-support@lrz.de). We will provide you with further instructions on how to proceed and will assist you in preparing your proposal. Further information regarding the application profiles supported by DECI and on how to proceed is available at http://www.deisa.eu/science/deci/deci-call-for-proposals2009
