NSC allocation requests are due October 26

September 21, 2021

NCAR researchers and computational scientists are encouraged to submit requests for NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects to be run on the Cheyenne system. Requests will be accepted through October 26. NSC allocations target large-scale projects lasting one year to a few years that align with NCAR’s scientific priorities and strategic plans.

You should be aware that the NSC panel is scrutinizing requests for storage resources closely because of the rapidly growing scale of the data generated and constraints on the available storage within the CISL environment. Also, remember that your NSC proposals should now describe the project’s relationship to the NCAR strategic plan. 

For submission instructions, see NCAR Strategic Capability projects. Please visit NCAR Research Computing if you have questions.
