Center Announcements

April 2024 OLCF User Conference Call (April 24) – New Features of Fortran 2023

The April OLCF User Conference Call will be held from noon until 1:00 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, April 24th. During this call, OLCF’s Reuben Budiardja will give an overview of Fortran 2023 and its use on Frontier. For more information, see the event page at https://www.olcf.ornl.gov/calendar/userconcall-apr2024/

INCITE 2025 Call for Proposals

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research projects in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains. Proposals must be submitted between April 10 and June 14, 2024.

The INCITE program aims to accelerate scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding researchers with substantial allocations of supercomputer time and supporting resources at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF).

Open to researchers around the world from academia, industry and government agencies, the INCITE program will award up to 60 percent of the allocable time on DOE’s leadership-class supercomputers: the OLCF’s Frontier, a 1.2 exaflops HPE Cray EX machine, and ALCF’s Polaris, a 34 petaflops (44 petaflops of Tensor Core FP64 performance) HPE Cray machine, and Aurora, an Intel-HPE Cray EX system with a theoretical peak performance of more than 2 exaflops.
