The PRACE Digest 1/2014 includes a collection of articles about science and research supported by PRACE via the PRACE Calls for Proposals and the Distributed European Computing Initiative.
Seven articles re-cap the advancements already made in the PRACE multi-year projects: A select group of seven excellent scientific proposals were awarded a one-year allocation while resources were reserved for the second year of their project, to be awarded through a mid-term hearing before the PRACE Access Committee. Multi-year access allows planning of long-term execution on the same HPC system(s) via projects that undergo only a single peer review process.
Seven more articles highlight some of the most outstanding results achieved in DECI-7, -8, and -9.
The topics of the articles range from fundemental physics to earth sciences, to life sciences to chemistry and materials to engineering.
Last but not least, the PRACE Digest also informs about the PATC Training Offer, the PRACE SHAPE Programme for SMEs, the PRACE 9th Call for Proposals, and the PRACE Scientific and Industrial Conference to be held in Barcelona in May 2014.
