OLCF USER DOCUMENTATION IS MOVING
As discussed on the September OLCF User Conference Call, our user documentation (system user guides, data transfer information, account information) is moving. The new site for this documentation is https://docs.olcf.ornl.gov, which is now live. This documentation will replace the equivalent user documentation available on the main OLCF website (the user documentation on that site will eventually be removed and redirected to the new site), so we encourage you to begin using (and providing feedback on) the new site now.
An important new feature of our documentation is the ability for you
to add your suggestions and contributions via https://github.com/olcf/olcf-user-docs/. Please begin using the new site for systems documentation and feel free to contribute suggestions, corrections, or additional documentation. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
NEW REQUIREMENT FOR ALCC PROPOSALS
For the 2020-2021 ALCC campaign, PIs are required to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) as the first step of submitting a proposal. The ALCC submission site will open at noon on Oct 1 with LOIs due on Dec. 16. All proposals are due when the submission site closes at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) on Feb. 3, 2020. Information from the LOI will be automatically populated to the proposal by December 18. More information can be found at https://science.osti.gov/ascr/Facilities/Accessing-ASCR-Facilities/ALCC
2019 OLCF USER SURVEY IS NOW AVAILABLE
The 2019 OLCF User Survey is now open. We truly value your feedback and encourage all users to complete this important survey. To take it, please visit https://orausurvey.orau.org/n/OLCFSurvey2019.aspx.
