How to be entitled to use CINECA HPC resources

In order to get a "personal" username for the HPC systems in CINECA, you have to register to our UserDB portal (userdb.hpc.cineca.it).

Moreover you need to be associated to a valid project, as a "Collaborator" or as a "Principal Investigator" (PI).

  • Collaborator: ask the PI of the project to be associated to it (he/she can do it in the UserDB portal).
  • Principal Investigator: you have to apply for a project or get HPC resources in some other ways

 At present, these are the ways you can get projects on our  HPC systems: 

  • ISCRA Projects: computing time allocation on the basis of a research project. You can get more information by accessing the dedicated web page;
  • LISA Projects: computing time allocation on the basis of a research project, with current research bodies in Lombardia. You can get more information by accessing the dedicated web page;
  • PRACE Projects: computing time allocation at European level on the basis of a research project. You can get more information by accessing the dedicated web site;
  • Agreements: several Italian Research Institutions have special agreements for computing provision.  Ask to superc@cineca.it for more information;
  • General users and Industrial applications: send a request to calcolotecnico@cineca.it to obtain an "on-demand" computing provision.
