Basic information

  • The grant application is submitted by the team manager (it must be a research team)
  • Proper resource grants allow users to apply for any amount of resources and negotiate it with resource administrators.
  • When applying for a proper grant the user must define:
    • their need for resources,
    • time of planned research,
    • data centers they want to use the resources at.
  • Planned use of resources must be motivated in grant documentation.
  • Only a non-trial workgroup leader is able to apply for and negotiate a resource grant. If you are not a leader of a proper workgroup (this means you only have a trial workgroup) create one in "Zespoły" menu.
  • User must report resulting publications containing PLGrid Infrastructure acknowledgments and provide justification for their usage of grant resources.
  • If the User does not accept the resource allocation up to 30 days, the grant application will be deleted.

Grants for PhD students and Subordinates

Grants for PhD students (and other students of researchers who are employed in research units)

Persons, who have obtained a master's degree and want to continue to use the resources of PLGrid infrastructure (with Subordinate affiliation), are asked to add their Supervisor to the team with the Manager role.

PhD students are asked that their grant name suggests a doctoral dissertation, e.g. by adding "PhD" to the grant name.

Grants for student’s projects and theses

Students writing diploma theses (of various degrees) are requested not to submit proper grants applications (such applications will be rejected), but to use grants for diploma theses established by their Supervisors.

Supervisors of students writing theses/student projects are asked to set up separate grants for their students for their students' diploma calculations and other projects. Such a grant does not require further justification, apart from providing basic information, including field of study and topics of work to be created on its basis. Supervisor should create one grant for all his/her Subordinates, thus gaining easy access to knowledge about the progress of their students' work. The grant for thesis/student projects is settled with the work created on its basis.

Detailed information on the grant for theses and student projects

  • the grant for diploma theses / student projects is a variation of the proper grant - access to resources, the application process and service remains the same as for the proper grant
  • it is recommended that the grant for the purposes of theses should be established for a separate group/team corresponding to the current seminar group of the given Supervisor. It is also recommended that the grant name suggests that this is a grant related to the creation of diploma theses/student projects
  • grants for thesis/student projects require the tean Manager to define the needs of the students' resources and present them by individual computing centers
  • the proper grant application is submitted by the team Manager who is the scientific Supervisor of the seminar group
  • the grant is negotiable when applying
  • the resources in the grant are negotiated by the team which submitted it
  • he grant does not require motivation. Please provide the name of the seminar, field of study, number of participants and topics of work to be created
  • the grant must be settled, within which scientific papers created with the use of grant resources should be submitted
  • if the User does not accept the resource allocation up to 30 days, the grant application will be deleted.

Basic grant settings

Start date - Data rozpoczęciaDate when you want grant resources to become available (allocation process may take up to 2 weeks).
End date - Data zakończenia

It is best if grant duration is at most one year. Otherwise the resource administrators reserve the right to shorten the grant duration time.

Grant is a continuation of a previous one
- Grant jest kontynuacją innego grantu

In case you want to continue research started in a previous grant (the topics are the same but the old grant has expired) tick this option. Using it may help shorten the allocation process.

Provide ID of the previous grant in the next field. You may also copy the old grant's description.

Preferred clusters - Preferowane ośrodki dla grantu

Pick a cluster (or clusters) where you want to conduct your research at - write its name using the following cluster list:

  • ICM
  • PCSS
  • TASK

Administrators of the sites you picked will be asked to provide resources - they may, but do not have to do it.

Planned research description

Research topic - Temat grantu
Summarize your research topic in one sentence.

Research goal - Cel badań naukowych

Description of planned research.

Supercomputer resource justification
- Uzasadnienie wykorzystania zasobów

Explain why you need to use supercomputer resources. You can briefly describe required resources what applications or services you may need.
Expected results - Spodziewany rezultat badańUser should provides information about planned publications, posters or conferences where you will share the research results.
Middleware - Sposób korzystania z grantu (middleware)

Pick middleware you want to use.

If you want to use a cluster directly via a batch system, pick "lokalnie na klastrze".

If you are unsure pick "zdecyduję później".
