How to Apply

You can apply from this site (English page is not available, sorry).
This site is not only for Research Center for Computational Science (RCCS), please be careful when choosing application type.
Besides the simple explanation of the procedure below, more detalied guide with many screenshots is also available. These materials would help you to submit an application. Template file for initial member registration is also available (please remove/overwrite example user Prof. Smith before uploading).

  2. Login to the application site using your account (e-mail address registered) and password sent via e-mail.
  3. Click "計算科学研究センター" (Research Center for Computational Science) button, and then click  "2020年度 計算科学研究センター" (Research Center for Computational Science FY2020) button.
  4. Fill the application. Application will be completed when you click "登録する" (register) button.(*)
  5. Notification e-mail where "共同利用研究申込承諾書" (consent form for Joint-research application) attached will be sent to representaive person.

Notes on Application

  • Some examples can be found in this page.
  • Reasons/estimates should be specific.
    • X hours are required to obtain a trajectory of XXX using Y CPU cores, and N-trajectories will be necessary for the qualitative analysis. Therefore, we request ZZZ (=X*N*....) points.
    • Single run yields XXX MB of data and we are planning to perform N runs for statistical averaging. Thus, we request ZZZ (XXX * N + margin) of disk space including AAA of  margin.
  • Please consider the total amount of disk space when you request huge disk space exceeding the standard value.
  • Additional resource (CPU points, disk space) request is possible but there are some restrictions.
    • In case of Category (B), total CPU points request (initially approved points + total of additionally requested points) must be <= min( 15,000,000, double of initially approved points).
