The 15th PRACE Call for Proposals yielded 76 eligible proposals of which 46 were awarded a total of close to 1.7 thousand million core hours. This brings the total number of projects awarded by PRACE to 570. Taking into account the two multi-year projects from the 13th Call that were renewed and the 8.6 million core hours reserved for Centres of Excellence, the total amount of computing time awarded by PRACE to date is nearly 16 thousand million core hours.
The largest allocations were awarded on Piz Daint hosted by CSCS, Switzerland to proposals by Prof. Javier Jimenez of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (122.4 million core hours) and Dr. Thomas Kluge of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (109 million core hours). The former is in the domain of Engineering and focuses on simulations of wall-bounded flows and the latter is in the domain of Fundamental Constituents of Matter and focuses on 3D particle-in-cell simulations to better understand the fundamental principles of plasma dynamics.
