The Large Spring 2019 call for large allocations is open

Please note that the requirements for the project description have been updated. The updated requirements can be viewed both in SUPR and at the SNIC website:


The Spring 2019 call for proposals for large allocations of computing time on the High Performance Computing resources of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) is open. The allocations are for the period 1 July 2019 - 30 June 2020.


The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) is a research infrastructure that provides resources for large scale computation to meet the needs of researchers from all scientific disciplines and from all Swedish universities, research institutes, etc. See Every six months SNIC issues a call for proposals for large allocations of computing time.


The deadline for submissions to this call is 5 April 2019 at 3 PM CET. At that time, access to the online application system for this call will be closed. 
The proposals that are submitted within the deadline will be reviewed by the Swedish National Allocations Committee (SNAC) with the help of external experts.

The proposals will undergo both scientific and technical evaluation.


How to apply:


SNIC uses an online proposal system for all allocations on SNIC HPC resources which is located at:


We encourage you to carefully read the instructions before submitting your proposal. Instructions are available at the SNIC website:


Available resources for the Large Spring 2019 call can be viewed at the SNIC website:


Note that allocations can be requested on one or more resources in a single proposal.


Please also note:

  • The resource Crex is the centre storage at UPPMAX, attached to the Rackham compute cluster. Proposals requesting Crex storage in SNAC Large must also include requests for compute resources totaling more than the limits of SNAC Medium(100 kch/month), at least part of which are on Rackham. Storage at SNIC centra other than UPPMAX is handled by individual consideration by the centra.
  • The publications list is requested as a separate file, not as a part of the PI´s CV.
  • SNIC explicitly requests the acknowledgement of SNIC in scientific publications that required the use of SNIC resources, services or expertise. Papers, presentations and other publications that feature work that relied on SNIC should include an acknowledgement. For more information visit the SNIC website:
  • While in SUPR please review your personal information to make sure that all mandatory fields are filled out.
