Call for proposals: Allocations on Blue Waters High-Performance Computing System

BlueWaters

Blue Waters, housed on the University of Illinois campus, is one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers and the fastest one located at a university.

Because of Baylor’s membership in the Southeastern Universities Research Association, our faculty are eligible to apply for time on the NSF-funded Blue Waters High Performance Computing System. This special program, managed by the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation, awards time on the Blue Waters system outside the normal NSF allocation process.

The Blue Waters system performs 13 quadrillion calculations per second, making it capable of handling the most arduous data processing and modeling applications. Currently, researchers from around the world are using Blue Waters for analysis related to cosmology, biological sciences, astrophysics, engineering and more.

Short (five-page) proposals are due on Nov. 3, 2014.  Click here to read the full call for proposals.
