PRACE 9th Call for Proposals connects the international HPC ecosystem

28 Jul 2014 Brussels - The 9th PRACE Regular Call for Proposals yielded 128 eligible proposals of which 43 were awarded for a total of close to 1.2 thousand million core hours. This brings the total awarded projects to 346 and the total awarded core hours to 9.2 thousand million. The 43 awarded projects are led by principal investigators from 13 different European countries. This Call also welcomed scientists and researchers from Australia, India, the Republic of South Korea, Turkey and the Unites States as collaborators in several projects.

Seven overall scientific domains are represented: 9 projects are linked to the fields of Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; 9 to Chemistry; 6 to Earth System Sciences; 7 to Engineering; 5 to Fundamental Physics; 2 to Mathematics and Computer Sciences; and 5 to Universe Sciences.

Two projects are linked to industry, involving Réseau de Transport d’Electricité (RTE), France, as principal investigator, and Toyota Motor Europe, Belgium, as collaborator.

Under the 9th Call, the project entitled AESFTl, led by Matteo Calandra of CNRS, France, is partner in the Graphene Flagship Initiative. The project received 9 million core hours on CURIE at GENCI@CEA, France.

The largest allocation under the 9th Call is the project entitled "Three-Dimensional Simulations of Core-Collapse Supernova Explosions of Massive Stars Applying Neutrino Hydrodynamics" led by Hans-Thomas Janka of the Max-Planck-Institut für Astrophysik in Germany. His project received close to 150 million core hours on 2 machines - MareNostrum at BSC, Spain and SuperMUC at GCS@LRZ, Germany.

Two PRACE-awarded projects are linked to ITER:

  • GYSELA-ROTATION led by Yannick Sarazin of the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA), France. His project received 46.8 million core hours on Fermi at CINECA, Italy.
  • EXCOMM, EXtreme scale domain decomposition solvers for COMputational Mechanics, led by Santiago Badia of CIMNE, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain. His project received 10 million core hours on Fermi at CINECA, Italy.

Under the 9th Call PRACE awarded resources to 6 ERC-funded projects and 2 to Marie-Curie awards. Eight allocations are linked to FP7 projects, while 22 other projects receive grants under various national programmes.

All information and the abstracts of the projects awarded under the 9th PRACE Call for Proposals can be found at http://www.prace-ri.eu/PRACE-9th-Regular-Call?lang=en .

The 10th Call for Proposals for PRACE Project Access (Tier-0) will be open from 10 September 2014, 12:00 (noon) CEST, until 22 October 2014, 12.00 (noon) CEST. Selected proposals will receive allocations to PRACE resources from March 2015 to March 2016.
