Projects can be submitted as part of open calls three times a year. Access can only be requested through the user portal at register.nscc.sk. register.nscc.sk  .

Standard access to high-performance computing resources is open to all areas of science and research, especially for larger-scale projects. These projects should demonstrate excellence in the respective fields and a clear potential to bring innovative solutions to current social and technological challenges. In the application, it is necessary to demonstrate the efficiency and scalability of the proposed calculation strategies and methods in the HPC environment. The necessary data on the performance and parameters of the considered algorithms and applications can be obtained within the Testing Access.

Allocations are awarded for one (1) year with the option to apply for extension, if necessary. Access is free of charge, provided that all requirements defined in the Terms of reference  are met. Submitted projects are evaluated from a technical point of view by the internal team of CC SAS and SK NSCC, and the quality of the scientific and research part is always evaluated by two independent external reviewers.

Call opening date: 6.5.2024
Call closing date: 31.5. 2024, 17:00 CET
Communication of allocation decision: Up to 2 weeks from Call closing.
Start of the allocation perion for awarded projects: no later than 15. 2. 2024

Eligible Researchers Scientists and researchers from Slovak public universities and the Slovak Academy of Sciences, as well as from public and state administration organizations and private enterprises registered in the Slovak Republic, can apply for standard access to HPC. Access is provided exclusively for civil and non-commercial open-science research and development. Interested parties from private companies should first contact the National Competence Centre for HPC.

Allocation period: 1 year

Overall allocation offered in the Call: 26 M CPU core-hours and 92k GPU-hours

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Benchmark Access 2024

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Benchmark Access 2024

The purpose of theEuroHPC JU Benchmark Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to test or benchmark their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access.

The EuroHPC Benchmark call is designed for code scalability tests or for test of AI applications and the outcome of which is to be included in the proposal in a future EuroHPC Extreme Scale and Regular Access call. Users receive a limited number of node hours; the maximum allocation period is three months

Call opening date: 1.12.2023
Call closing date: 1.04.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.05.2024 (11:00 CET) 1.06.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.07.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.08.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.09.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.10.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.11.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.12.2024 (11:00 CET)

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Development Access 2024

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Development Access 2024

The purpose of the EuroHPC JU Development Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to develop, test and optimise their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access. The EuroHPC Development call is designed for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and optimisation. As well as development of AI application methods.

This can be in the context of research projects from academia or industry, or as part of large public or private funded initiatives as for instance Centres of Excellence or Competence Centres. Users will typically be allocated a small number of node hours; the allocation period is one year and is renewable up to two times.

Call opening date: 1.12.2023
Call closing date: : 1.04.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.05.2024 (11:00 CET) 1.06.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.07.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.08.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.09.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.10.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.11.2024 (11:00 CET), 1.12.2024 (11:00 CET).

Inno4scale: Innovative Algorithms For Applications On European Exascale Supercomputers

Inno4scale: Innovative Algorithms For Applications On European Exascale Supercomputers

Inno4scale is a European initiative, which was started to support the development of innovative algorithms for exascale supercomputers, so their efficient use can be fully exploited. Currently existing codes for high-performance computing will not be able to function efficiently on upcoming exascale systems in the future. Therefore, the project will identify and support the development of applications that have the potential to fully exploit the new upcoming EuroHPC exascale systems. The most successful application will be taken up by science and industry after the project.

The objective of Inno4scale is to support the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, whose goal it is to achieve the deployment of Exascale supercomputers in Europe. As part of the project, the development of novel algorithms for applications on upcoming European Exascale supercomputers will be efficiently exploited. Used in public administration or industry these supercomputers will be able to solve previously unaffordable computational challenges. Industry, science, as well as public administration will then be able to reduce their time-to-solution for computational simulations and approach larger problems with novel solutions.

The Inno4scale project started in the beginning of July 2023 and will run for 21 months. Financial support is guaranteed to the project by the use of cascade funding. The project is coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Project partners: SCAPOS, the High-Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart and the PRACE network. A total budget of EUR 4.5 Mio. is available to the project.

You can apply for the Inno4scale Open Call and submit your proposals for the upcoming innovation studies!

Devana: Call for Projects for Testing and Benchmarking

Devana: Výzva na podávanie projektov pre testovanie a benchmarking

The Computing Center of the SAS and the National Supercomputing Centre are opening the first call for proposals for testing and benchmarking The call is continuously open, the project is possible repeatedly during the year and can be used through the register.nscc.sk  user portal. The testing and benchmarking approach serves primarily to obtain data on application performance parameters, parallelization, utilization, and scaling of data storage size requirements for subsequent standard access requests. However, it can be used for less time- and computationally intensive projects.
