Call for Proposals for use of
Swedish High Performance
Computing Resources


The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC is a metacenter sorting under the Swedish Science Council. SNIC has been given the task of coordinating and developing high end computing capacity for Swedish research. The SNIC computer resources are hosted by the member centres. More information on SNIC can be found at www.snic.vr.se/.

You are hereby invited to apply for nationally available SNIC resources at HPC2N, NSC, PDC and SweGrid. Submissions should be made via the SNAC on-line application procedure.

The national application procedure for high performance computing resources allows for co-ordinated review of proposals, optimized use of the available resources, as well as a unified application procedure. Note that resources can be requested at one or more centres in the same application.

Proposed projects will be reviewed by the Swedish National Allocations Committee (SNAC), which is now responsible to SNIC. SNAC will issue calls for proposals every 6 months. The present call regards applications for allocations effective 1 July 2003.

The deadline for SNAC proposal submission is 2 May 2003 at 16:00. At that time, all access to the on-line application system will be closed. Incomplete or late proposals will be discarded.

Before submitting your application please read the detailed instructions available at
http://snac.vr.se/instructions.htm.

The on-line proposal system represents a unified application form for all national HPC resources and is located at

Cognitive Science symposium
June 16-17, 2003

Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary research area concerning thinking and communication of humans and machines from a technical and biological perspective as well as humanities/social science perspective. In society today, the growth and use of advanced information technology (IT) is accelerating. As a result, there is an increased need for people with technical knowledge as well as knowledge within the area of science of humanities. The boundaries between traditionally technical areas and areas traditionally regarded as the humanities and social science is slowly being erased. Moreover, lately the connection between these two areas and biology have grown. Research and teaching within cognitive science is greatly enhanced when social science and humanities aspects of IT are taken into consideration. This is very relevant for future IT development.

The center for cognitive Science in Stockholm together with Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (RUCCS) has arranged this symposium in order to emphasize and shed some light on the importance of basic research within cognitive science and its relevance for future IT development.

The symposium is an excellent opportunity for private persons, universities and companies working with cognitive science or other related research, education and IT development to meet and discuss research, knowledge and related IT development questions.
You are hereby invited to participate in this symposium.
