Application Guideline of Collaborative Research Program for Large-Scale Computation for FY 2016 (3rd Period)
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 October 2016 to March 2017.(Except for the peak season: from mid-November to mid-February)
- 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.
Conditions and 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 4 nodes, two weeks in Type C, 64 nodes, two weeks in Type E.
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.
Non-Japanese citizens such as international students who live in Japan less than six months and Japanese citizens residing in foreign countries may need to obtain an approval. Please see the following URL for details. If applicable, please consult Research Information Section.
- Project representatives are required to:
- Submit a User Report of the Collaborative Research Project by the end of April, 2017.
- Present the project achievements at the debriefing session (scheduled in May or June, 2017) open to Kyoto University faculty, staff, and students and supercomputer users.
- Contribute an article of about four pages (A4 size) on the project achievements to the Inter-University Services Bulletin.
- Please make sure to include the use of this project in the acknowledgment of academic journals or other publications, and to send us the list of document information at the time of publishing the achievements.
* See examples at Acknowledgement for use of Collaborative Research Project
- In September 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.
Please fill out the Word file application form and email it to the Inter/Intra University Services Section.
