• DECI (Tier-1) Access

  • DECI (Distributed European Computing Initiative) is an Europeansingle-project HPC access scheme which is now supported by PRACE-2IP.Previously, DECI which stood for DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative, wasconceived of and supported by the DEISA projects which issued six DECIcalls between 2004 and 2009.

    Please follow this link in order to access the DEISA DECI calls.

    Under the PRACE projects, DECI has been integrated into the PRACEecosystem of HPC facilities and services. In order to provide seamlessaccess to users, PRACE took over the organisation, operation anddissemination of DECI scientific results. In this section you will find information related to DECI calls and awarded projects supported by PRACE Second Implementation Phase project.
