The U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Office of Science has announced 56 projects aimed at accelerating discovery and innovation to address some of the worldâ€™s most challenging scientific questions. The projects will share 5.8 billion core hours on Americaâ€™s two most powerful supercomputers dedicated to open science at Oak Ridge and Argonne national laboratories.
The diverse projects will advance knowledge in critical areas ranging from sustainable energy technologies to next-generation materials, a press release said.
Researchers from academia, government research facilities, and industry received computing time through the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment, or INCITE, program. The program was created as the primary means of accessing the DOE Leadership Computing Facilities at Argonne and Oak Ridge national laboratories.
â€œThe INCITE program drives some of the worldâ€™s most ambitious and groundbreaking computational research in science and engineering,â€ said James Hack, director of the National Center for Computational Sciences, home to the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, a DOE Office of Science User Facility. â€œThe program has a very strong and diverse collection of projects in 2016, and we look forward to working with investigators to ensure they succeed with their challenging objectives.â€ [Read more…]
