ALCF resources are primarily used for DOE INCITE and ALCC awarded projects. Additional information on the INCITE program can be found on the DOE INCITE website and the ALCC program can be found on the Office of Science website. Projects with INCITE and ALCC awards will be contacted directly by the ALCF staff with information on creating accounts.
Non-INCITE projects may be able to obtain allocations from the Director's Discretionary Allocation process. See the Director's Discretionary (DD) Program page for more information.
