INCITE Proposal Writing Webinar

Through an annual call for proposals, INCITE grants scientists around the world awards of compute time on two of the nation’s most powerful high-performance supercomputers for fundamental research. Typical awards range from 20 to 100 million core-hours. The 2014 INCITE Call for Proposals will be from April 15th – June 28th, 2013 for awards of compute time on the Cray XK7 (Titan) system at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility and the IBM Blue Gene/Q (Mira) systems at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility. A total of 5 billion core-hours will be allocated for calendar year 2014.
