Summer start to new simulation science projects

membrane_alcfEach year, the DOE’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research program, or ASCR, dedicates roughly 30% of the computing resources at its three supercomputing facilities to projects pursuing DOE mission research. The yearlong ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) awards, which begin July 1, aim to advance clean energy technologies, to better understand climate and environmental systems, and to respond to potential disasters.

ASCR recently awarded 19 new ALCC projects a total of 1.64 billion core-hours at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, expanding both the scope of scientific simulation research happening at ALCF and the community of researchers that will be capable of using a leadership-class system. Read more about the individual projects here.
