Blue Waters for GLCPC Members

I recently was asked to note that applications for the Blue Waters machine for Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC) are open and due October 31st (Halloween Cycles!).

This is great option to get Blue Waters cycles for smaller users.  This is kinda tongue in cheek as "small" is 5 million core hours.  Given that normal Blue Waters allocations are much larger this is a small large scale user.

See the notice below:
I am writing to you as President of the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation to bring your attention to a call for proposals for GLCPC allocated computer hours on the new Blue Waters Machine.  As a member of the GLCPC, faculty at your institution are eligible to apply for an allocation of time reserved by NCSA for member institutions.  As XSEDE Campus Champions, I believe you may know faculty that are interested in this opportunity.

The call for proposals can be found at

I would appreciate it if you could forward this information to the faculty on your campus that might be interested in submitting proposals for this unique opportunity.

 If you are a University of Michigan reader and want more information contact me at CAEN Advanced Computing.
