Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe
Supercomputing support for COVID-19 research
PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) and VSC (Vienna Scientific Cluster) currently offer a fast track review process for project applications related to COVID-19:
- PRACE support to mitigate impact of COVID-19 pandemic
- European HPC ecosystem rallies to support the fight against COVID-19
- VSC fast tracks projects that help the fight against COVID-19
- MOOC "MPI: A Short Introduction to One-sided Communication": 20 April - 03 May 2020
- MOOC "Python in High Performance Computing": 27 April - 24 May 2020
A consortium of Austrian universities, represented by the ACONET Association, joined the "Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe" (PRACE) in July 2018 (see Press Release).
This opens up new opportunities in the field of supercomputing for researchers and students in Austria:
- Apply for PRACE HPC Access
- Preparatory Access allows to optimize own codes for the target system (continuously open call). Support by experts is available (evaluated and granted on a quarterly schedule).
- Project Access is for production runs using codes that have been previously tested and that demonstrate high scalability and optimization to multi-core architectures or that demonstrate a requirement for ensemble simulations that need a very large amount of CPU/GPU overall.
