Open to scientists from the research community in industry, academia, and national laboratories, ALCC allocates 10% to 30% of the computational resources at ASCR’s three high-performance computing facilities. The facilities are the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Leadership Computing Facilities at Argonne and Oak Ridge national laboratories. These resources represent some of the world’s fastest and most powerful supercomputers.

ALCC issues one-year allocation awards that are active from July 1 to June 30 of the following calendar year.

Decisions on preproposals will be communicated Monday, January 10, 2022.
