Request for proposals for biomolecular simulation time on Anton supercomputer — June 16 application deadline
June 16, 2014 @ 12:00 am
The Biomedical Applications Group at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is soliciting proposals for computer time on Anton, a special-purpose supercomputer for molecular dynamics (MD) simulation designed by D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES). A 512-node Anton machine is currently available and in production use at the PSC. The machine has been made available without cost by DESRES for non-commercial research use by universities and other not-for-profit institutions, and is hosted by PSC. To qualify for an allocation on Anton, the principal investigator (PI) must be a faculty or staff member at a U.S. academic or non-profit research institution and must have the appropriate level of authority and responsibility to direct the project supported by the allocation. A graduate student or postdoctoral researcher may not be a PI, but a qualified advisor may apply for an allocation on her or his behalf. Furthermore, each investigator can serve as a PI for only a single application for computer time on Anton. PIs who previously had an allocation on Anton at PSC are required to provide a 2-3 page progress report of their past work on the Anton machine at PSC. Repeat applications unaccompanied by a progress report will not be considered. For additional information, please visit the following page: http://www.psc.edu/index.php/
