All campus researchers are invited to apply by March 16 for allocations on the powerful Blue Waters supercomputer. There will be a Q&A session about the supercomputer and the proposal process from 3 to 5 pm March 5 in Room 1040 at the NCSA Building.
 
Both exploratory and general allocations are available. Exploratory projects (20,000-50,000 node hours) are intended to enable researchers to prepare code for Blue Waters. General allocations (30,000-1 million node hours) are intended for large-scale research projects. Proposals will be judged on their scientific and/or educational merit, their suitability for Blue Waters, and their demonstrated need for the unique capabilities of Blue Waters.
