PRACE: Preparatory Access Call


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.

PRACE Preparatory Access Call

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 and Type D which includes code
development with support from PRACE experts.
Type C provides direct access to a Tier-0 system.
Type D offers users to start the optimisation work on a PRACE Tier-1 national
system to finally reach PRACE Tier-0 system scalability.

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
for Type C and Type D will be reviewed every third month.

The next cut-off date is September 2nd, 2019.

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 on the website mentioned above.
