HPC allocations at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility

Rebecca Hartman-Baker and Judith Hill, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility

In this session we will describe the various options for obtaining compute time on the leadership supercomputing resources at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  In addition to the existing DOE INCITE and ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge programs and the OLCF Director’s Discretion program, the OLCF has created a process specifically for DOE CSGF fellows to apply for an allocation.  We will describe the proposal requirements for all these programs and provide tips and insights on what makes a proposal stand out.  The presenters will also address fellows’ specific questions about OLCF resources and high-performance computing in general.
