ALCC Program Awards Computing Time on ALCF’s Theta Supercomputer to 24 projects – HPCwire

Aug. 6, 2020 The U.S. Department of Energys (DOE) Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) has awarded 24 projects a total of 5.74 million node hours at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) to pursue challenging, high-risk, high-payoff simulations.

Each year, the ASCR program, which manages some of the worlds most powerful supercomputing facilities, selects ALCC projects in areas that aim to further DOE mission science and broaden the community of researchers capable of using leadership computing resources.

TheALCC programallocates computational resources at ASCRs supercomputing facilities to research scientists in industry, academia, and national laboratories. In addition to the ALCF, ASCRs supercomputing facilities include the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC are DOE Office of Science User Facilities.

The 24 projects awarded time on the ALCFs Theta supercomputer are listed below. Some projects received additional computing time at OLCF and/or NERSC (see the full list of awardshere). The one-year awards began on July 1.
