IIT-Delhi invites proposals for supercomputer-based COVID-19 research

IIT-Delhi has invited proposals from the government and private academic institutions as well as private companies in collaboration with an academic partner from across the country to use its supercomputer source PADUM for COVID-19 research. In this, the allocation of supercomputer resources to merit-based proposals will be made for three months and a total of Rs 1 crore in computation time will be provided to them for free. Each proposal has a maximum limit of Rs 10 lakh in computing power, a statement reads.

The allocation period can be extended up to six months after evaluation of the project performance. “In these difficult times, sharing resources is important to meet the infrastructure requirements of researchers working on the coronavirus. IIT-Delhi has taken a principled position and wants to set an example. It is important that scientists work together, given that the urgency of the situation, “said Prof. V Ramgopal Rao, director of IIT-Delhi.

The researchers have been asked to submit their proposals by April 15 at the latest. After submitting the proposals, IIT-Delhi experts will evaluate them on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the proposals have been selected, IIT-Delhi will provide them with basic and limited support, including instructions for job submissions or the smooth functioning of these projects, the statement said.

In addition, all researchers from India are also welcomed to use a supercomputer at IIT Delhi for COVID-19 research for a fee. “IIT Delhi equates to 2X the amount contributed to using supercomputers (high-performance computing HPC) for COVID-19 research,” the statement said. In this basic payment mode, the institute will allocate a budget of Rs 5 crore to high-performance computational resource (supercomputer) over the next six months. (ANI)
