Grand Challenge #1 Awardees

The Computing Grand Challenge Program allocates significant quantities of institutional computational resources to LLNL researchers to perform cutting edge research on the LC capability computers. Proposals are reviewed by a lab-wide committee of researchers on the basis of the expected visibility and impact of the computational approach and anticipated scientific results. Most projects selected for Grand Challenge are awarded Tier 2 allocations, which corresponds to a substantial allocation on LC capability machines. A small number of highly-scored proposals are awarded larger Tier 1 allocations each year to showcase the highest visibility computational science currently being conducted at LLNL.
