DiRAC serves more than 35 projects with over 400 active users.  Our community is diverse and encompasses Particle Physics, Astrophysics, cosmology, solar system science and Nuclear Physics. Together their research addresses all the STFC Science Challenges. The featured photo in the header above shows the CSD3 Peta4 CPU/KNL cluster which provides our Data Intensive@Cambridge Service.

The Current Call for Proposals (10th) Closed on 14th November 2017, and the allocations started on the 1st May 2018. The awards from the 10th Call are available here.

The Next Call (11th) will open in June 2018, Close on 1st October 2018 and Allocations awarded will begin on 1st May 2019.


Call Results: Compute Time and Storage Allocated

After each  Call has been concluded, we publish the compute time allocated to each project, in terms of CPU-Mhours on the DiRAC Resource on which the calculations are to be run, as well as the Storage Space [TB] allocated. In DiRAC we have three compute services and due to the different architectures on each Service, the CPU-Mhours awarded to projects using different services may not be directly comprable.
