Blue Waters Supercomputer Available for Educational Projects

As part of the Blue Water project, up to 1 percent (or 1.8 million node-hours) per year of the system's computational capacity is available for educational uses, including semester-long courses, workshops, and institutes. These Education Allocations are intended to broaden the impact of Blue Waters and contribute to the development of a national workforce with expertise in petascale computing. The allocation is to enable projects that advance petascale computational and data analysis knowledge and skills, foster projects that are visionary and/or are national in scope, integrate research and education activities among national science and engineering communities, and proactively engage under-represented groups and individuals in science, engineering and scholarly research. The Blue Waters Education Allocations Committee anticipates that up to 20 allocations will be supported at a time. Projects may be for at most one year but will typically cover a one- to two-week period or a semester. For complete details and to submit a proposal, visit:
