Acceptance of Proposals for SuperMUC
We have already informed you about the opportunity to file "Large Scale
Projects" via the Seventh Gauss Call (see http://www.lrz.de/services/
Large Scale Projects require more than 40 million core-hours per year.
Starting on March 1st, we will now also accept normal scale projects.
Please submit your application for compute time by using the online
Access to the new 3 Petaflop/s system SuperMUC is expected to be opened
in July or August, 2012.
Conversion of existing budgets
The HLRB Steering Committee has decided to scale up the remaining
compute time with a factor of 3. This will be done in early March.
A combined HW and SW maintenance is scheduled for March 5 and 6, 2012.
* New Kernel
* OFED upgrade
* File system parameter
* Intel compiler update
No access to SuperMIG is possible during this period.
Bavarian universities can apply for financial support by KONWIHR
(Competence Network for Technical, Scientific High Performance
Computing in Bavaria).

Deadlines: 1 March 2012; 1 Nov 2012
We also want to draw your attention to the PRACE Calls for access to
Tier-0 systems in Europe (including SuperMUC). The PRACE (Partnership
for Advanced Computing in Europe) Research Infrastructure allows
researchers from across Europe to apply for time on high-end
high-performance computers via a peer review process. Preparatory
access allows researchers to apply for code scalability testing and
also support for code development and optimisation from PRACE RI
members software experts. Preparatory access allows researchers to
optimise their codes before responding to project calls. There are 3
types of preparatory access:
* Code scalability testing to obtain scalability data which can be
used as supporting information when responding to future PRACE
* Code development and optimisation by the applicant using their own
personne resources (i.e. without PRACE support).
* Code development with support from experts from PRACE.
Deadlines: 1 March 2012; 1 June 2012
