NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Pilot for the Allocation of High-Throughput Computing Resources

Allen Pope March 3, 2022

Dear Colleagues:

Computational resources are critical for sustaining progress in modern scientific and engineering research and development activities. As such, NSF recognizes1 that lowering barriers to the prompt allocation of computational resources can accelerate progress and enable discovery, while at the same time democratize access and facilitate the onboarding of new communities that could benefit from advanced computing resources and services

Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), NSF announces a Pilot for the Allocation of High-Throughput Computing (HTC) resources made available through the Partnership to Advance Throughput Computing (PATh) project supported by NSF2. HTC supports the automated execution of workloads that consist of large ensembles of self-contained inter-dependent tasks that may require large amounts of computing power over long periods of time to complete. Available resources include large-scale compute and GPU servers and nearline storage, as described in more detail on the PATh credit accounts web page. Investigators may contact credit-accounts@path-cc.io with questions about PATh resources, using HTC, or estimating credit needs.

Both the Arctic Research Opportunities & Antarctic Research solicitations are participatingFull information at https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2022/nsf22051/nsf22051.jsp
