PRACE Award to Dr. Turlough Downes

Posted on 22 July 2013

ICHEC is delighted report that a team lead by Dr. Turlough Downes of Dublin City University has been awarded 16.3 Million Core hours through the PRACE "7th Regular Call" for a proposal entitled: "MF-DISK: Protoplanetary disk dynamics: the multifluid magneto-rotational instability, gaps and jets".

His collaborators are Wayne O'Keeffe DCU, Donna Rogers DIAS, Aleks Scholz DIAS and Gilles Civario of ICHEC. The computer time has been awarded on the JUQUEEN system at the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing in Jülich, Germany. This is currently the fastest computer in Europe with a performance of greater than 5 Petaflops.

Also in this call Prof. John Bulava of Trinity College Dublin is a collaborator in another successful proposal lead by Stefan Schaefer of CERN. This project is in the area of Quantum Chromodynamics.

The PRACE Regular Calls are held every 6 months, they are open to researchers across Europe and are extremely competitive. Irish researchers interested in pursuing resources via PRACE are encouraged to contact ICHEC in advance to discuss their application. Sucessful Irish Regular Call applications are now automatically entitled to the equivalent of 10 percent of the award on ICHEC systems to support local work on the project.
