PRACE calls for proporals for preparatory access

PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is a Research Infrastructure that allows researchers from across Europe to apply for time on high-performance computers from a series of hosting nations via a central peer review process.

Preparatory access is intended for testing and developing codes in order to prepare applications for PRACE Tier-0 project access. In particular, we would like to draw your attention to the Preparatory Access Type C which includes code development with support from PRACE experts. Further information are given on the PRACE web page

The Preparatory Access Call is a rolling call, researchers can apply for access all year. There are no closing dates, proposals will be reviewed every third month.

The next cut-off date for PRACE Preparatory Access Call for Tier-0 is June 2nd, 2014.

We invite all interested scientists, whose projects fit the criteria of the PRACE call to submit their projects. The criteria for the PRACE Calls as well as complete information on the PRACE machines, how to apply and on the PRACE peer review process can be found at
