    PRACE 11th Call for Proposals opens 9 February 2015

/On 9 February 2015 at 13:30 CET, PRACE will open its 11th Call for
Proposals. This Call includes Multi-year Access as well as a Data
Storage Service Pilot. The Call will close on 18 March 2015 at 12:00
(noon) CET./


The PRACE 11th Call for Proposals is open to *Project Access*:

  * Proposals can be based on a 12-months schedule, or, for Multi-year
    Projects, on a 24- or 36-months schedule. The allocation of awarded
    resources is made for 1 year at a time with provisional allocations
    awarded for the 2nd and 3rd year.


Additionally, the 11th Call:

  * Offers the opportunity to launch a pilot call for joint data storage
    services and resources. This call is a pilot and its future
    continuation shall be subject to evaluation. This pilot case will be
    proposed jointly with PRACE associated members and partners willing
    to provide storage and associated data services under the PRACE
    umbrella including EUDAT, EU-T0, BSC, CaSToRC, EPCC/EPSRC, and SURFsara.
  * Reserves 0.5% of the total resources available for the 11th Call for
    Centres of Excellence (CoE) as selected by the EC under the
    E-INFRA-5-2015 call for proposals. CoE don’t need to apply to this
    PRACE call – if funded by the EC, CoE requesting access to PRACE
    resources will be awarded PRACE resources from this reserve.


The PRACE Access Committee, composed of leading European scientists and
engineers, ranks the project proposals that will be awarded access to
PRACE resources.


With PRACE 1.0 evolving into PRACE 2.0, a balanced contribution of the
PRACE Hosting Members was sought. This transition phase has led to a
reduced offer of resources.

Therefore the 11th Call will offer resources on only:

  * *FermiFERMI*, an IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer operated by CINECA, Italy
  * *MareNostrum*, an IBM System x iDataPlex supercomputer operated by
    BSC, Spain

Both systems are suitable for to a wide variety of codes and awarded
projects will receive dedicated technical support at the hosting sites.


*Important dates*

  * Opening date: 9 February 2015, 13:30 CET
  * Closing date: 18 March 2015, 12:00 (noon) CET
  * Response of applicants to reviews: 27 May 2015 – 3 June 2015
  * Anticipated allocation decisions: last week of July 2015
  * Allocation start date of awarded proposals: 1 September 2015
  * Allocation end date of award: 31 August 2016
