MINOS Multidisciplinary INtensive computing for research activities Of
European Scientists - Call for Candidatures

CINECA, a consortium made up of 15 Italian universities
(http://www.cineca.it), has been appointed, because of its large-scale
scientific and technical facilities, as a centre for the application of
supercomputing in interdisciplinary research activities.
This Call for Candidatures aims at selecting European researchers who
can spend a research period at CINECA Supercomputing Centre fully
supported by the MINOS Project (Multidisciplinary INtensive computing
for research activities Of European Scientists), a project funded by EC
under the 5FP IHP (Improving Human Potential) Programme.
Under the MINOS Project, CINECA is able to host Researchers through
March 2003 so that European Researchers may make use of the resources
and services here available (more info on http://minos.cineca.it).
Disciplines covered by the multidisciplinary project are:
Bio-technologies, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Computer Science,
Economics, Engineering, Human Sciences, Mathematics, Physics.
With regard to the supercomputing aspect of the project, CINECA will
provide hosted European Researchers with training, parallel
supercomputing facilities, access to scientific visualisation laboratory
and to on-line information service. The Researchers will be provided
with the support of CINECA experts for the best use of resources
available. Hosted Researchers will be supported by the project for
travel and accommodation expenditures too.
