The 21st Call for Proposals of PRACE Project Access welcomes a new system and more access that ever to GPUs.
The 21st Call for Proposals of PRACE Project Access is now open until 28 April 2020, 10:00 CEST. The Terms of Reference can be found here. The Technical Guidelines for Applicants can be found here. The Project Scope and Plan template can be found here.
Overall, the Call includes 10 systems, including a completely new one (JUWELS Booster). The 21st Call will offer more GPUs than ever before to researchers on three different systems (Piz Daint, Marconi100 and JUWELS Booster).
The PRACE systems that are offering resources in the 21st Call are the following:
|HAWK||HPE Apollo||GCS@HLRS (DE)||345 million|
|Joliot-Curie KNL||BULL Sequana X1000||GENCI@CEA (FR)||88 million|
|Joliot-Curie Rome||BULL Sequana XH2000||GENCI@CEA (FR)||459 million|
|Joliot-Curie SKL||BULL Sequana X1000||GENCI@CEA (FR)||124 million|
|JUWELS Booster||BULL Sequana XH2000||GCS@JSC (DE)||35.04 million (*)|
|JUWELS Cluster||BULL Sequana X1000||GCS@JSC (DE)||70 million|
|Marconi100||IBM Power 9 AC922 Whiterspoon||CINECA (IT)||660 million (*)|
Use of GPUs
|MareNostrum 4||Lenovo System||BSC (ES)||T.B.D.||30 million|
|Piz Daint||Cray XC50 System||ETH Zurich/CSCS (CH)||510 million|
Use of GPUs
|SuperMUC-NG||Lenovo ThinkSystem||GCS@LRZ (DE)||121 million|
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/GPU overall.
