HPC Calls now Open

open

There are several EPSRC HPC (high performance computing) calls out at the moment which researchers should be aware of.  If you would like to apply to any of them Research IT is able to help with the preparation of applications.

ARCHER

EPSRC offers access to ARCHER through calls for proposals to the Resource Allocation Panel (RAP). Users can request significant amounts (>1,000kAUs or >66,667 ARCHER core hours) of computing resource over a maximum 1 year period.

A non-exclusive list of eligible projects includes:

  • Short computational projects that do not warrant a full grant application
  • UK led collaborative projects with international and/or industry partners
  • Joint applications from students (as Co-I) with proven HPC experience (e.g. a successfully completed instant access project) and their PIs
  • Projects that link consecutive standard grant applications or that aid the preparation of a grant or fellowship application
  • Extended feasibility studies and trialling application developments at scale

Closing date – 22nd March for Technical Assessment

ARCHER Top-up

The aim of this call is to provide top-up resource on ARCHER for all existing EPSRC grant-holders for a maximum of two years.

TIER 2

EPSRC is offering open access to five Tier-2 High Performance Computing facilities through this call for proposals. The five facilities users can access through this call are: Cirrus, GW4, CSD3, HPC Midlands +, and JADE. Further details on each of these centres can be found in the call document on the EPSRC website. For details on how to access The Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub (MMM Hub), please see their website.

The aim of this call is to provide access to national Tier-2 HPC facilities for adventurous high-risk, high-reward projects that will benefit from the diversity of computing architectures available at Tier-2.

A non-exclusive list of eligible projects includes:

  • Short computational projects that do not warrant a full grant application;
  • UK led collaborative projects with international and/or industry partners;
  • Joint applications from students (as Co-Is) with proven HPC experience and their PIs;
  • Projects that link consecutive standard grant applications or that aid the preparation of a grant or fellowship application;
  • Extended feasibility studies and trialling application developments at scale;
  • High-risk, high-reward projects that would benefit from using novel architectures.

Remember that the University of Manchester also has it’s own local computational resources and Manchester researchers can apply for access to the regional resource, N8 HPC, at any time.  If you would like to discuss your application or get access to any of our local resources then please get in touch.
