Request for Proposals for Biomolecular Simulation Time on Anton
Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 08:00am - 11:59pm

The National Center for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems (MMBioS), and the National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing (NRBSC) at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) are soliciting proposals for computer time on Anton, a special-purpose supercomputer for molecular dynamics (MD) simulation designed by D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES). A 512-node Anton machine is currently available and in production use at the PSC. The machine has been made available without cost by DESRES for non-commercial research use by universities and other not-for-profit institutions, and is hosted by NRBSC. Operational funding is provided by NIGMS through MMBioS, a joint effort between the University of Pittsburgh, PSC, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Salk Institute.

The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m., EDT, Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
