  • Writing a successful XSEDE allocation proposal (Webinar followed by live discussion)

    The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE, formerly called TeraGrid) is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. During this Webinar, XSEDE staff will introduce users to the process of writing a successful XSEDE allocation proposal. An allocation is required to use XSEDE resources for your research.

    Dean Nairn, XSEDE Campus Champion at UD, will moderate a brief post-webinar discussion on XSEDE-related services. During this session, the IT Research Group will help you

    • get an XSEDE portal ID,
    • find available resources (computer, data and software),
    • submit an allocation request or get a trial allocation via IT's "training" account, and
    • log in and move files.
