PRACE Regular Call 5: records galore!
The 5th PRACE Regular Call for Proposals, which opened on 17 April 2012 and closed on 30 May 2012, received 80 applications for time on one or more of the 6 PRACE systems offered. A record number of 57 of those applications withstood the in-depth scrutiny of the peer review process and were awarded the core hours needed to perform their research.
Great science needs great power. And PRACE makes sure it gets just that. Each of the PRACE systems has its own record-breaking project allocation:
Heavy ion phenomenology form lattice simulations by Szabolcs Borsanyi of the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (Germany) received 91.791.360 core hours on Juqueen @ GCS@FZJ, Germany
SHAKEIT – Physics-based evaluation of seismic shaking in Northern Italy by Andrea Morelli of the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy) received 53.4 million core hours on SuperMUC @ GCS@LRZ, Germany.
ENSING – Euler and Navier-Stokes SINGularities by Sergio Pirozzoli of the Sapienza, University of Rome (Italy) received 50 million core hours on Fermi @ CINECA, Italy.
HiResClim: High Resolutions Climate Modelling by Colin Jones of the Swedish Metereological and hydrological Institute (SMHI, Sweden) received 38 million core hours on MareNostrum @ BSC, Spain.
Large scale molecular dynamics simulations of nucleation by Jürg Diemand of the University of Zürich (Switzerland) received 35.3 million core hours on Hermit @ GCS@HLRS, Germany
Electrophysiology – Atomistic modelling by Mounir Tarek of CNRS – Université de Lorraine (France) received 28 million core hours on Curie @ GENCI@CEA, France
These allocations certainly raise the expectations for the results to be achieved in the months to come. Stay tuned…!
