The annual OLCF User Survey is now available
The annual OLCF User Survey is now available for your participation at the following URL: https://orausurvey.orau.org/n/2022OLCFUserSurvey.aspx
The survey is conducted on behalf of the OLCF by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Just as project reports are a requirement of all OLCF projects, participation in the annual User Survey is an important obligation and a requirement of your OLCF access. At the OLCF, we are focused on making ongoing improvements to user satisfaction. The OLCF relies strongly on the input received from our user community and encourages you to continue providing feedback through the annual survey and directly to our staff. Users can also provide comments and feedback to the OLCF User Group Executive Board. In addition, survey response is one of the key areas in which the OLCF is evaluated, and thus your participation is very important to ensure the OLCF continues to be able to provide you with leadership computing resources.
The survey is scheduled to close on November 11, 2022. If you have questions, please contact the OLCF User Assistance Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALCC Call for Proposals
NOTE: Pre-proposals are due on November 28, 2022
The DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) is now accepting application proposals for the 2023-24 allocation year of the ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) program. The program provides access to computational resources at ASCR’s three supercomputing facilities (OLCF, ALCF, and NERSC) and will include allocations on OLCF’s Frontier system.
The proposal process consists of two steps, with a pre-proposal due on November 28, 2022, and the full proposal due on February 17, 2023. The allocation period for successful proposals will run from July 1, 2023-June 30, 2024.
For more information, see the announcement at https://science.osti.gov/ascr/Facilities/Accessing-ASCR-Facilities/ALCC.
2022 OLCF User Meeting
The 2022 OLCF User Meeting took place last week and featured a number of facility and user-led talks. The majority of the presentations from the meeting are available on the User Meeting website at https://www.olcf.ornl.gov/calendar/2022-olcf-user-meeting/ under the agenda pages.
– HPSS will be unavailable from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM on Tuesday, November 1
– Summit, Andes, DTN, Alpine Filesystem, Crusher, Spock, and jupyter.olcf.ornl.gov will be unavailable from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM, Tuesday, November 08.
Supercomputing Spotlights: Efficient Computation through Tuned Approximation
The Supercomputing Spotlights webinar series is presented by the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing (SIAG/SC, https://siag-sc.org). These TED-style talks highlight the impact and successes of high-performance computing (HPC) throughout our world and are intended for the broad international community, especially students and newcomers to the field. The first talk will take place on November 02 at 10:00 AM (EDT) and will feature Presenter, David Keyes from the Extreme Computing Research Center, KAUST in Saudi Arabia. He will discuss Efficient Computation through Tuned Approximation. Participation is free, but registration is required.
