The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) invites European researchers to apply for access to powerful national (Tier-1) computing resources in Europe. Proposals from academia and industry are eligible, as long as the project leader is undertaking non-proprietary research. Project leaders will typically be employed in research organisations (academic or industrial). Proposals must deal with complex, demanding, innovative simulations that would not be possible without Tier-1 access.

The PRACE DECI calls provide single project cross-national access to national HPC resources (Tier-1). Access will be awarded for a period of 12 months. Allocations are available on architectures such as Cray XE, Cray XC30, IBM Blue Gene/Q, Intel and PowerPC Clusters (various processor and memory configurations) and hybrid systems (clusters with GPGPU accelerators). Applicants need not specify a particular machine or architecture, but if they do, their preferences will be taken into account.

The closing date for the present call (DECI-12) is 20 January 2014, 17:00 CET
Allocation start date: 1 May 2014
Allocation period: 1 year
Type of access: DECI (Tier-1)
