Early User Computing Opportunity on Bridges-2

PSC is excited to announce the Early User Program for Bridges-2, their newest computational research platform. Bridges-2 will provide transformative capability for rapidly evolving, computation-intensive and data-intensive research, creating opportunities for collaboration and convergence research. It will support both traditional and non-traditional research communities and applications. Bridges-2 will integrate new technologies for converged, scalable HPC, machine learning and data; prioritize researcher productivity and ease of use; and provide an extensible architecture for interoperation with complementary data-intensive projects, campus resources, and clouds.


The Bridges-2 Early User Program (EUP) is a 30 day opportunity expected to start at the beginning of November, for you to port, tune and optimize your applications early, and  make progress on your research goals through early access to components of Bridges-2. Any interested researchers in all computational disciplines including artificial intelligence and machine learning, data intensive applications, and traditional computational researchers are welcome to apply to participate in the EUP.  You must be a researcher or educator at a U.S. academic or non-profit institution, and a faculty member or postdoc must serve as the PI. Applications to the EUP are accepted through the XSEDE Resource Allocation System (RAS) until October 30, 2020. Bridges-2 resources will be provided during the EUP at no cost to approved participants, all you will be asked to fill out a survey at the end of the EUP giving us your impressions and progress during the period.
