Information on the Calls for Proposals for PRACE Project Access.
CET / CEST
PRACE publishes its Calls for Proposals for Project Access twice per year according to a fixed schedule:
- Call opens in February > Access is provided starting September of the same year.
- Call opens in September > Access is provided starting March of the next year.
There are currently no open Calls for Proposals for Project Access.
This Call for Proposals targets large-scale, computationally intensive projects that would not be possible or productive without access to PRACE resources.
Applications for Project Access must use codes that have been previously tested and that demonstrate high scalability and optimisation to multi-core architectures or that demonstrate a requirement for ensemble simulations that need a very large amount of CPU overall.
For development and scaling of HPC codes, PRACE offers Preparatory Access here
The systems available for Project Access are:
- “Curie”, Bull Bullx cluster (GENCI@CEA, France)
- “Fermi”, IBM Blue Gene/Q (CINECA, Italy)
- “Hornet”, Cray XC40 (GCS@HLRS, Germany)
- “MareNostrum”, IBM System X iDataplex (BSC, Spain)
- “SuperMUC”, IBM System X iDataplex (GCS@LRZ, Germany)
Please note: The dates in these schedules are a pre-announcement and may need to be adjusted due to unforeseen circumstances. The schedules published on these pages supersede all previously released schedules for PRACE Calls for Proposals.
