Scientists, engineers and other U.S. researchers may apply for the next quarterly review of requests for free allocations of high-performance computer time, advanced user support, and storage resources that are available through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Cyberinfrastructure’s (OCI) TeraGrid.

Each quarter, a panel of computational experts known as the TeraGrid Resource Allocations Committee (TRAC) evaluates requests primarily on the appropriateness and technical aspects of using TeraGrid resources. Applications received by the April 15 deadline will be considered at the June 2010 TRAC meeting and awards will be available from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.

For the next round of awards, researchers can request time on 12 systems, including TeraGrid’s two largest, which were funded under NSF OCI’s Track 2 Program—Ranger at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), and Kraken at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS)—and the newest TeraGrid resource, the Longhorn remote visualization and data analysis system at TACC.
