A research collaboration of national laboratories for the U.S. DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office
High Performance Computing (HPC) program
Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) of the U.S. Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is offering allocations on the Summit supercomputer at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) for computational projects which benefit the BETO mission. The Consortium for Computational Physics and Chemistry (CCPC) is administering the program for BETO.
The BETO-HPC program anticipates soliciting proposals at the start of each fiscal quarter starting with FY2020 Q3 under a structured, competitive review process. Two types of projects tied to specific BETO tasks or interests are acceptable:
Any DOE national laboratory staff conducting research and development supported by BETO is eligible to apply. Awarded projects will receive allocations of computing time; funding support for users must be provided by the current BETO project supporting the research. The appropriate WBS element(s) should be specified in the proposal summary.
Proposals received by April 15, 2020 will receive priority. Questions should be addressed to email@example.com. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee composed of DOE, LCF, and CCPC/national laboratory representatives. Criteria for reviewing proposals will include:
Please apply at the following link:
Both types of projects require creation of a user account with OLCF to manage authentication and accounting. In addition, PIs will sign an agreement covering aspects such as data sensitivity.
