Apply now for national HPC access in 2020

Calls are open for time next year on the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre’s high-performance computer Magnus and for access to National Computational Infrastructure’s (NCI) resources.

Applications for the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS) close on Friday, 20 September, and on Friday, 4 October for the Energy and Resources Merit Allocation Scheme.
 
If you are interested in using supercomputing resources for your meritorious research between January and December 2020, please consider applying.
 
NCMAS supports computational research in all science disciplines across Australia.
 
A new NCI peak HPC system, Gadi, will be operational from 1 January 2020. All NCMAS 2020 allocations at NCI will be on Gadi.
 
NCMAS is also an avenue for accessing HPCs Magnus, FlashLite and MASSIVE.
 
The Energy and Resources Merit Allocation Scheme supports energy and resources-focused research projects across Australia. Energy examples include generation, storage and distribution. Resources examples include exploration, minerals extraction and processing, groundwater, and waste management.
 
Applicants can take a free, self-paced information course on NCMAS 2020 here.
 
QCIF eResearch Analyst and HPC specialist Dr Marlies Hankel will deliver a seminar on Monday, 9 September at UQ St Lucia providing an overview of NCMAS, the application process and NCI’s available facilities (more information).
