The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science provides a portfolio of high-performance computing facilities housing some of the world’s most advanced supercomputers. These leadership computing facilities enable world-class research for significant advances in science.  Open to researchers from academia, government labs, and industry, the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) Program is the major means by which the scientific community gains access to Jaguar.  The program aims to accelerate scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering. The 2013 INCITE Call for Proposals is for awards of compute time in calendar year 2013.

For more information regarding the INCITE Program, see  Additional details will be provided when the Call for Proposals opens. Address specific questions to the INCITE Manager, Julia White, at

We invite prospective INCITE-proposal PIs to respond to a Request for information to inform the INCITE management of the proposal topics anticipated. See for details. The information requested here is not a prerequisite for proposal submittal, nor will it limit any requests you may decide to make in your INCITE proposal. However, you are encouraged to respond if you are contemplating submitting an INCITE proposal. We would value receipt of your information by April 6th.

The OLCF will be teaming with the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) for an “INCITE Proposal WritingLecture/Webinar.” The session will provide both prospective and returning users the opportunity to get specific answers to questions about the proposal andreview process for INCITE. Representatives from INCITE, OLCF, and ALCF will be present for the event. The webinar is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am Eastern time, 9:00 am Central time and is scheduled to last for 1.5 hours. This webinar will be held twice, on both March 26th April 24th. Registration is available at

The 2013 INCITE Call for Proposals is for awards of compute time on the Cray XK6 (Titan) system at the OLCF and the IBM Blue Gene/P (Intrepid) and IBM Blue Gene/Q (Mira) systems at the ALCF.
