29 Aug 2017



The Hartree Centre’s Intel® Xeon Phi™ co-processor access programme is currently open for applications




Do you wish to experiment with your code on cutting-edge architecture in an HPC environment? Are you an industrial or academic user who wants to see if you can get your results more quickly? The Hartree Centre’s Intel® Xeon Phi™ (Knight's Corner) co-processor access programme is currently open for applications.

It is a pre-requisite that if you are a member of a project granted access in previous access programmes, the project has provided the feedback requested, i.e., a report detailing the work undertaken, particularly the science and engineering content and the impact of the project. Any previous users applying for access who have not yet completed a feedback form will be rejected.

Please note that this access programme provides free usage of the computing resources but does not provide support or any development effort. This programme covers the period between Thursday 5 October 2017 and Friday 5 January 2018.

Application deadline: Friday 29 September 2017

Your application will be assessed and you will be notified of the outcome by Wednesday 4 October 2017. For full details, terms and conditions see the application form.​ ​Download the application form below:

About Intel Xeon Phi

The Intel Xeon Phi (Knight’s Corner generation) is an accelerator co-processor using a many core architecture; it has greater parallelism and a much larger number of cores than an ordinary CPU (central processing unit). In order to benefit from this architecture your code will have to execute concurrently across multiple cores and threads whilst exploiting the Single Instruction, Many Data (SIMD) paradigm. With the release of the new generation of Xeon Phi processors (Knight’s Landing) this architecture is even more compelling and the Knight’s Corner is an ideal development platform to start preparing your code.
