If you wish to apply for a project which will have resources allocated at HPC2N, the Principal Investigator (PI) has to apply for one according to the rules described on SNIC allocations web page. There are three different kinds of projects you can apply for: small, medium, and large. You apply for all of them on the SNIC SUPR page, under rounds. To do so you need an account there.
When you start a project application, the progress will be saved as 'In Preparation' on your SUPR page, and you can continue working on it later. Just remember to save the changes you make to each of the sections!
You will need to fill in more information for the larger projects, than the smaller ones. However, there is some information you will need regardless of the type of project: Title, Abstract, Resource Usage (how do you plan to use the requested resources), Classification (VR classification codes - only in Swedish), length of project (1-12 months), which resource(s) you wish to use, and the amount of core hours/month you need.
Much of the information on the application will be filled in, but you should check that your contact information and such is correct.
Small level requests:
Medium level requests:
Before filling out the form to apply for a medium level project, you should read the instructions.
Large level requests:
Before filling out the form to apply for a large level project, you should read the instructions.
You can read the slides here from the seminar by Philipp Schlatter: "SNIC and SNAC: Handling of large-scale computer time allocations in Sweden.".
Make sure you have the following information handy before filling in the form:
Please, also read the
before you start applying for an account. Take a look at an overview the available resources at HPC2N.
All user administration for all types of projects are handled by the PI (or the appointed proxy-PI) in SUPR. The users must first have an account in SUPR and have signed the SNIC User agreement. Signing it can be done on the "Personal Information" page in SUPR.
Please look under project info for details on how to obtain project information about current and past projects at HPC2N.
If you have jobs still in the queue when your project expires, the priority of those jobs are lowered drastically. However, your job will not be removed, and you can change the project account for the job with this command
scontrol update job=<jobid> account=<newproject>
