Application Guideline of Collaborative Research Program for Large-Scale Computation for FY2016 (1st Period)

Overview

We will accept applications for research projects on large-scale computing programs. Eligible applicants are limited to research groups that use the supercomputer system in fiscal year 2016. Submitted candidate projects are reviewed by "Supercomputer System Collaborative Research Planning Committee" of the ACCMS. As for the adopted projects, the ACCMS bears the usage fee of the large-scale job course within a certain amount. This project period is from April to June, 2016.

Application Eligibility Requirements

  • Any research group that uses the supercomputer system either through the personal course, the group course (including "Organization Fixed Rate"), or the private cluster course (including in pending application) in fiscal year 2016.
  • The target program must be expected to demonstrate achievements in academic and technical areas by large-scale computation on Large-scale job course.

Research Program Requirements

  • For adopted research projects, the ACCMS bears a certain amount of usage fee of the large-scale job course within resources and period specified by the ACCMS. The amount of resources and period will be determined when reviewing applications, based on the contents of applications. Maximum value is 128 nodes, two weeks in Type A, 64 nodes, two weeks in Type B, and is 16 sockets(4 nodes), two weeks in Type C, 64 nodes, two weeks in Type D, 64 nodes, two weeks in Type E, 16 nodes, two weeks in Type G.
    In case that there is a small amount of resources, the period can be extended such as 64 nodes, one week, four times in Type A. The use period shall be on a weekly basis. The term of series usage and the use period shall be provided by the ACCMS.
  • A research project manager must do the following:
    • Submit a research project report on supercomputing (Deadline: the end of April, 2017).
    • Announce the research project results at a report meeting open to Kyoto University faculty, staff, and students (Anticipated period: April, 2017).
    • Contribute an article on research results (about four pages, A4-size paper) to our public relations magazine.
  • When publishing or announcing the research results achieved through the adopted project in an academic journal or other publication, acknowledge the use of this program in writing in the report. The project manager must also send information and relevant documents on the report to the Inter/Intra University Services Section.
    * On the wording of the acknowledgements, please see "Regarding acknowledgements for use of the Collaborative Research Program".

NOTES

  • In March 2016, we hold a public meeting on research projects considered for adoption.
  • In reviewing, The ACCMS regards researches that may develop into super-large-scale computation in the future, and that may be collaborated with the ACCMS, as important.
  • Actual results of executing large-scale job, and of publishing, and research results of the projects may be referred for the next reviews and later.

Application Procedure

Please fill out the Word file application form and email it to the Inter/Intra University Services Section.
Deadline: 17:00, Friday, February 26, 2016
Personal information provided in the application will be used for application purposes only.
