Run your MD simulations on Anton

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC, is soliciting proposals for computer time on Anton 2, a special-purpose supercomputer for molecular dynamics (MD) simulation designed by D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES). Anton enables scientists to perform MD simulations of biomolecular systems nearly two orders of magnitude faster than the previous state of the art. To maximize the benefit of Anton to the scientific community, proposed projects should focus exclusively on questions that will be greatly advanced by the unique capabilities of Anton. In their description of the scientific objectives, investigators must clearly explain why achieving their objectives requires access to Anton, and could not be efficiently achieved on other high performance computing systems available at their institutions or through national supercomputing resources made available by the NSF, DOE, or other programs. The deadline for applications is 11:59 pm, EDT, Thursday, June 13, 2019. For the full RFP, please visit
