Six more research projects are granted computing time by NWO
The advanced national computer facilities are used for technical-scientific research in which major computational problems need to be solved and where the computational facilities of the individual institutions are inadequate. Via the Call Computing Time on National Computer Facilities, researchers can request computing time on the national computer facilities. The NWO Committee for the Scientific Use of Supercomputers (WGS) meets 6 times a year in order to assess the applications.
Following the meeting of the WGS on 20 October 2022 NWO grants the following applications for computing time:
P. Das PhD(c) (UvA)
‘GRMHD simulations of accreting neutron stars’
Snellius: 11.490.000 CPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 60 TB project space.
Prof.dr.ir. R.A.W.M. Henkes (TUD)
‘Core-annular flow (Part 2)’
Snellius: 4.665.870 CPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 48 TB project space + 40 TB offline tape storage data archive.

Snellius: 6.812.160 GPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 15 TB project space + 0,2 TB offline tape storage data archive + 200 GB Research Drive
Dr. E.M. Rossi (UL)
‘A Library of Tidal Disruption Event Simulations: the Key to Intermediate Mass Black Hole Discovery’
Snellius: 11.900.000 CPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 5 TB project space.
Dr. L.M. Vilmin (Deltares)
Snellius: 9.111.552 CPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 25 TB project space.
Dr. Z. Zanoli (UU)
‘Quantum Materials by Design’
Snellius: 28.438.560 CPU SBU + 200 GB standard home directory storage/user + 39 TB project space + up to 5 TB research drive.
SURF also awarded 114 small-scale computing time applications in the period 1 August - 30 September 2022.
How does it work?
Applications can be submitted on a continuous basis. Researchers can request computing time, storage, and support on the following computer systems: HPC Cloud, Lisa computing cluster, Snellius supercomputer, Data Processing (Grid, Spider), and Custom Cloud Solutions. You can request large amounts of computing time for a project duration of two years via NWO. Small amounts of computing time for a project duration of one year can be requested directly from SURF.
