PRACE and XSEDE call for Expressions of Interest
PRACE and XSEDE call for Expressions of Interest for joint access by international research teams
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the National Science Foundation-funded Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) have teamed up to foster collaboration between U.S. and European scientists and engineers.
PRACE and XSEDE have issued a joint call for Expressions of Interest: U.S. and European researchers who wish to work together using PRACE and XSEDE resources and services to advance scientific discoveries are invited to apply.
"XSEDE and PRACE have been collaborating for several years, most visibly with the joint summer school series," said John Towns, XSEDE principal investigator and project director. This call for Expressions of Interest is a precursor to supporting science and engineering collaborations in an unprecedented way.
"We are looking forward to receiving feedback on the needs and expectations from the user communities of the major HPC infrastructures on both sides of the Atlantic," adds Maria Ramalho, Managing Director of PRACE.

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is an international non-profit association with its seat in Brussels. The PRACE Research Infrastructure (RI) provides a persistent world-class High Performance Computing (HPC) service for scientists and researchers from academia and industry. The Implementation Phase of PRACE receives funding from the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreements no. RI-261557 and no. RI-283493.
XSEDE is the most advanced, powerful and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. XSEDE is a partnership of more than a dozen institutions engaged in providing HPC resources, software, extended support, education, outreach, and training to help more scientists and engineers use the resources. The five-year project is supported by the National Science Foundation.
