Research at the MSC
A variety of user projects are supported by EMSL's computing resources. These projects are categorized in three types based on their depth and focus. Brief descriptions of these project types and how to submit a proposal for each follows. In addition, detail is available about current, individual Computing Research Projects.
- Computationally Intensive Research projects (CIR) - formerly known as Computational Grand Challenge projects, these research projects apply to environmental molecular science basic and applied research areas that address environmental problems and research needs facing DOE; CIR projects can be proposed for periods of one to three years, depending on their scope. Potential areas of interest are described by EMSL's Science Themes. EMSL users can submit a proposal for a CIR project in response to an EMSL Science Themes call for proposals, which occur annually.
- EMSL Science Themes projects - specifically applied to one or more of the EMSL Science Themes, these projects frequently support experimental research occuring within EMSL. These projects generally require less computer time depending on the scope of their research. EMSL users can submit a proposal in response to an EMSL Science Themes call for proposals, which occurs annually.
- Pilot projects - smaller and short-term, these projects for general research are typically directed at developing a capability to submit a future CIR project proposal (e.g., a combination of theory/method or code development activities or doing calculations that provide the initial scientific basis of a CIR proposal); some Pilot projects are for computational support of experiments performed in other EMSL facilities. EMSL users and potential EMSL users can submit a proposal for a Pilot project at any time by following EMSL's General Open call Proposal Process.
For information regarding any EMSL project, please see the EMSL Proposal Process page. This page includes information regarding the submission process and has links to help users develop and submit proposals.
