High Performance Computing (HPC-Supercomputing) and Virtual Research Environments



IUCC is a member of PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), for shared use of the European supercomputing centers.

Access to PRACE Resources

Access to PRACE supercomputing resources is first accomplished via a submission for core hours in the quarterly Preparatory Access cut off dates. The deadline for submitting Preparatory Access is on the first day of each quarter (March, June, September and December). Administrative Validation is granted within two working days after the cut-off date and allocation decisions are approximately. 30 calendar days after the cut-off date. For more information, please see


After this stage, when it has been proven that the code is optimized and able to run in the HPC environment, application can be made for more core hours in the Project Access framework. PRACE publishes twice-yearly Calls for Proposals in February and September.

For information please see http://www.prace-project.eu/Call-Announcements

For assistance in submitting a proposal, please contact Zivan Yoash, or a member of the IUCC HPC User Forum, or see the PRACE User Forum LinkedIn group.

IUCC is a partner in VI-SEEM, a three-year project to create a unique Virtual Research Environment (VRE) in Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean (SEEM). The infrastructure will facilitate regional interdisciplinary collaboration, with special focus on the Life Sciences, Climatology and Digital Cultural Heritage.

The project unifies existing e-Infrastructures into an integrated platform to better utilize synergies, for improved service provision within a unified Virtual Research Environment for scientific communities of high impact in the combined South East Europe and Eastern Mediterranean region and improving research productivity and competitiveness.

For more information, please  visit the Vi-SEEM website or the IUCC Vi-SEEM Wiki page.
