COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium

On March 23, 3030 the White House announced the launch of a new partnership that aims to unleash U.S. supercomputing resources to fight COVID-19: the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium. The goal of the Consortium is to bring together the Federal government, industry, and academic leaders to provide access to the world’s most powerful high-performance computing resources in support of COVID-19 research. The access to these resources has the potential to significantly advance the pace of scientific discovery in the fight to stop the virus.

To request access to resources of the COVID-19 HPC Consortium, you must prepare a description, no longer than two pages, of your proposed work. To ensure your request is directed to the appropriate resource(s), your description should include the following sections. Do not include any proprietary information in proposals, since your request will be reviewed by staff from a number of consortium sites. It is expected that teams who receive Consortium access will publish their results in the open scientific literature.
