Nine Research Teams Receive Great Lakes Consortium Allocations on Blue Waters
The Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation(GLCPC) allocates a portion of the Blue Waters supercomputer located at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The GLCPC awards peer-reviewed application requests on the Blue Waters supercomputer to faculty and research groups from member institutions.
The GLCPC member institutions include universities and colleges, national laboratories, the Southeastern Universities Research Association, educational foundations, and K-12 school districts who are developing educational and workforce development programs to help realize the full potential of petascale computing.
Through a robust allocation process, nine research teams have been awarded a total of 4.3 million node hours (over 137 million core-hour equivalents) on Blue Waters for the 2018-2019 timeframe. These projects cover a range of science fields, including the investigation of the HIV-1 infection cycle, simulating near-ground hazards during thunderstorms, and modeling the behavior of black holes.
