Allocations displayed below were determined in a meeting of the National Computational Merit Allocation Committee.

  • All values are kilo-service units (kSU). 1 service unit (SU) does not necessarily equal 1 cpu-hour. Please refer to each facility's documentation for more information on their charging rates.
  • An EMPTY cell indicates that no request was made for that HPC facility.
  • A ZERO (0) allocation indicates a Committee decision NOT to allocate resources from that HPC facility.
