The National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) is pleased to announce the 2014 open call for participation in the Beacon Project, an ongoing research project funded by NSF and the University of Tennessee to explore the impact of emerging computer architectures on computational science and engineering.  Proposals are currently being accepted for compute time on Beacon, a 48 node Cray CS300-AC Cluster Supercomputer with each compute node configured with 2 Intel® Xeon® E5-2670 processors, 4 Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors 5110P, 256 GB of RAM, and 960 GB of SSD storage.  Individual researchers and teams are invited to submit proposals for projects investigating the impact of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor(s), the large amounts of memory per CPU core, and/or the use of parallel SSD storage on areas of interest to their particular field of study.  Please see https://www.jics.tennessee.edu/aace/beacon/open-call for more details.

Thank you for your time.
