The HECToR Service is now closed and has been superceded by ARCHER.

High Performance Computing Complementary Capability Challenge - Call for Proposals

Call Now Open - Closing Date 4pm 11th September 2008

EPSRC has recently taken the decision to extend the HPCx service until January 2010.

The decision to extend HPCx is in response to consultation with UK HPC users that have highlighted a need for more flexible, user led provision of HPC resource in the UK in order to accommodate job types that do not readily fit within the remit of a "Leadership" facility. As such, both the extension and this call are aimed at exploring the concept of complementary capability computing and the role that this mode of operation may play in future HPC provision.

Specifically, this call provides an opportunity for UK investigators to request large amounts of compute time on the HPCx service in order to explore this mode of operation and investigate scientific computational challenges that do not "fit" within the necessary operational confines of the UK's current Leadership facility, HECToR.

Details of the call are available in the PDF below. If you have further questions or require any further information please contact Dr Dai Jenkins at EPSRC.
