Call for high performance computing cluster access

In support to scientists wishing to enter the Materials Science and Engineering Data Challenge, co-organized by the Air Force Research Lab in partnership with the National Science Foundation and the National Institute for Standards and Technology, Materials Today  has partnered with  HPCC Systems, to provide up to 3 packages for training and computation time on their High Performance Computing Cluster.

Materials Today now invites researchers with a need for high intensity computation time to propose projects that fit within the scope of the Grand Challenge: one page entries may be uploaded via the form below. In addition, we will invite authors of a selection of entries to turn their final submissions into journal articles, and considered for publication in Materials Discovery.

Details about the challenge can be found on the dedicated page on challenge.gov, in brief:

Submission Dates : Jul 01, 2015 - Mar 31, 2016
Judging Dates : Apr 01, 2016 - May 11, 2016
Winners Announced: May 11, 2016

The materials data used in the challenge must be publicly accessible & discoverable on the internet by 1 Sep 2015. Those who wish to make data accessible can do so on the NIST Materials Data Repository.

Applications will be judged on the novelty and significance of the approach, as well as on the demonstration that it has produced a valid solution to an open problem in materials science and engineering.
