Oak Ridge leads DOE INCITE effort in 2008
Date:1/17/2008

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Jan. 17, 2008 Scientific studies on climate change, energy and alternative fuels are among the 30 projects awarded more than 145 million processing hours on supercomputers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory through the Department of Energys Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program.

Through INCITE, researchers from industry, academia and government research facilities receive access to computing power at the National Center for Computational Sciences at ORNL for research on climate change, fusion energy, nanoscience, materials, chemistry, astrophysics, and other areas.

"The Department of Energy's Office of Science has two of the top 10 most powerful supercomputers, and using them through the INCITE program is having a transformational effect on America's scientific and economic competitiveness," DOE Under Secretary for Science Raymond L. Orbach said. "Once considered the domain of only small groups of researchers, supercomputers today are tools for discovery, driving scientific advancement across a wide range of disciplines. We're proud to provide these resources to help researchers advance scientific knowledge and understanding and thereby to provide insight into major scientific and industrial issues."

This years total allotment of processing hours nearly doubles that which ORNL provided in 2007, when the largest allocation was 10 million processor hours. The 2008 program will see six projects with at least 10 million hours, and the largest allocation is 18 million processor hours.

By providing research access to supercomputing facilities at ORNL, the 2008 INCITE program advances the scientific discovery that is crucial to improving our lives and our understanding of the world we live in, ORNL Director Thom Mason said.

ORNLs 2008 INCITE allocations include energy projects related to biofuels such as ethanol; next-generation fuels such as hydrogen; clea
