4th Quarter XSEDE Allocations Research Proposal Dates

XSEDE allocation research request (XRAC) proposals are due October 15th. An overview of XSEDE is on the ARC website, in general it is a large set of national resources for computational research. They are at no cost, but do require a proposal for access. These proposals are simple and most get some sort of an award/resource.

Brock Palen at ARC is the local XSEDE Campus Champion and is available for help learning, using, and accessing XSEDE resources.  He can be contacted at

Researchers who want to get started sooner and/or are new to XSEDE resources should use a Startup proposal which are accepted year round and require significantly less documentation.
