HP-SEE to launch a pilot call

The HP-SEE project intends to open a pilot call for proposals for access to HPC resources available in the region of South-East Europe (SEE). The call is addressed to scientists from the fields of Computational Chemistry, Computational Physics, Life Sciences, Earth and Space Sciences, and Engineering. Via this call the HP-SEE project will make it possible for scientists from the above-mentioned scientific disciplines to obtain access to the national HPC systems available in the SEE region.

The resource architectures that will be available for this call span from a IBM's BlueGene/P, x86_64-based HPC clusters with high speed interconnect, to clusters with GPUs, and will be provided by Bulgaria, FYR of Macedonia, Hungary, Romania, and Serbia. The call will be open in September 2012 and access to resources will start at the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013, with a duration of one year.

Eligible applicants are scientists affiliated with academic or research institutions from Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Serbia, FYR of Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Moldova, Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan.

Representatives from the industrial sector can participate as collaborators in open research projects lead by members of academic or research institutions.

Further details and assessment criteria for the call will be available on the HP-SEE project web site.
