HECBioSim Project Application Form for ARCHER Time


Before filling out this form it is strongly recommended that you read through the application guide and the FAQs. You should determine from these documents whether or not you need to complete a technical assessment and have it accepted by ARCHER before filling out this form. It is also recommended that if you are using one of our supported codes (see FAQ) that you make use of the HECtime calculator, this tool provides a good insight into how many kAU's a simulation will require (you will be asked this).

Please note:

New applications where previous allocations closed with unused resource allocation of 50% and higher will be heavily penalised during review.
