Preparatory access (PA) is intended for testing and developing codes in
 order to prepare applications for PRACE Tier-0 project access. In
 particular, we would like to draw your attention to the Preparatory
 Access Type C which includes code development with support from PRACE
 experts. Further information is given on the PRACE web page: http://
 The Preparatory Access Call is a rolling call, researchers can apply
 for access all year. There are no closing dates, proposals will be
 reviewed every third month. The next cutoff date is September 2nd,
