*Astronomy Supercomputer Time Allocation Committee: Call for Proposals - NCI, gSTAR/swinSTAR, Epic*

Call closes 9am (AEDT) 27th November 2012

Attached is a call for proposals for time (total of 3.2 MSU) on a number of Australian Supercomputer Facilities for Q1-Q2 in 2013. The same information is available on the Astronomy Australia web-site at http://astronomyaustralia.org.au/astac.html

We would like to draw your attention to the following key points:

1. The time available to Australian researchers for computational astrophysics on world-class facilities has increased markedly over the last few years. This is a great time to be working in this area.

2. The GPU facility gSTAR, located at Swinburne, offers users an opportunity for very high performance computational power for appropriately written code.

3. The deadline for this current round of proposals is 27 November, 2012 so that there is adequate time to prepare a good proposal.

4. We are particularly keen to encourage graduate students and early career researchers to become involved in this rapidly developing field. Modern computer hardware and software offers the capacity to perform simulations of numerous astrophysical situations at high resolution and in at least three dimensions. 
Advisers are available to assist people in getting started with their computational projects.
