Q&A: Illinois allocations on Blue Waters

08.29.13 -

Blue Waters is one of the world’s fastest computing systems. Each year that Blue Waters is in operation, up to 13 million node-hours will be allocated to projects from the University of Illinois. This resource provides Illinois faculty and staff with a unique opportunity to perform groundbreaking work in computational science and engineering. Proposals from faculty and staff interested in using Blue Waters are due SEPT. 15; for details about how to submit a proposal, see http://parallel.illinois.edu/allocation-time-blue-waters-uiuc.

If you have questions about the capabilities of Blue Waters and how they could be used for your research, or if you have questions about how to write a successful proposal, come to a Q&A about Blue Waters at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6 at the NCSA Building, 1205 W. Clark St., Urbana. Project Director Bill Kramer and other NCSA staff will be available to answer your questions, and light refreshments will be provided.
