Application Guideline of Collaborative Research Project for FX700 "Trial Use" and "Small Node Use" for FY2021

Overview

Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies, Kyoto University (ACCMS) calls for proposals of collaborative research project for the"Trial Use" and the "Small Node Use" of the Fujitsu FX700 which is equipped with the same ARM processor as the supercomputer Fugaku for research groups using our supercomputer with the Group Course in the fiscal year 2021.

The "Trial Use" of FX700 is intended to be widely tried by the users of our supercomputer by making the application form simple. The research report is also simplified and only operation report and performance report of the executed application are required.

The collaborative research project for the "Small Node Use" will be adopted from users who have already finished the operation confirmation of the application on the "FX700 Trial Use". Submitted proposals are reviewed by Supercomputer System Collaborative Research Planning Committee. If your proposal is adopted, you will be required to submit a research report. There is no cost burden for using this project.

Eligibility and Requirement

  • The applicant must be a member of a research group which is currently using our supercomputer system with the group course (including Organization Fixed Rate or JHPCH) in FY2021.
  • The period of use is one month for both "Trial Use" and "Small Node Use" and the request for the extension will be accepted for both of them. However, if the applications are flooded, the period may not be extended.
  • Adopted applicants are required to submit a research report at the end of the period.
  • The maximum number of nodes for " Trial Use" is 4 nodes, and the maximum number of nodes for " Small Node Use " is 8 nodes.

Adoption Criteria

Proposals which are expected to produce academic results by using this project, and proposals which are expected to have a potential to develop into various project research, will be actively adopted.

System Configuration

HardwareSoftware
Fujitsu FX700 12-node
・Processor: A64FX 2.1GHz 48 cores (aarch64)
・Memory: HBM2 32GB

Note

As FX700 is a small-scale trial environment, we do not have sufficient support system. We may ask you to solve the software installation and malfunction problems on your own.

Application

Please fill out the application document (Word File) and submit the Word file from the application form below. The deadline is 5:00 p.m. on the 15th of each month, and the service is scheduled to start on or after the 1st of the following month. The personal information you provide will be used only for the purpose of this system. Please note that the acceptance of the application may be closed depending on the situation.
