Gauss Call for Large Scale Projects No. 5
publish at lrz.de
Mi Feb 2 11:12:55 CET 2011
Large-scale projects and highly scalable parallel applications are
characterised by large computing time requirements, not only for short
time frames, but often for longer time periods. The GCS member sites
will guarantee that large-scale projects can fully utilise the assigned
resources, if necessary at the expense of normal or smaller projects.
Projects are classified as Large-Scale , if they require more than 5%
of the potentially available CPU cycles on a member centre s high-end
more than 70 Mill. CPU-hours at JSC (corresponding to 24 rack
months IBM BG/P)
more than 4 Mill. CPU-hours at LRZ (SGI Altix 4700)
For these large-scale projects a competitive review and resource
allocation process is established by the GCS. Requests for resources
below these limits will be accepted by the individual member centres.
Requests above these limits will be handed over to GCS, handled
according to the joint procedures, and will be reviewed in the national
context. Projects of smaller scale will be still handled by the local
GCS member site.
A "Call for Large-Scale Projects" is published by the Gauss Centre
twice a year. Dates for closure of calls are usually at the end of
February and at the end of August of each year. The deadline for this
particular call is
February 28th 2011.
Eligible are applications from publicly funded academic and research
institutions, e.g., universities, Max-Planck Society, and Helmholtz
