Requesting Additional Time

Occasionally, some LCRC projects might use up their quarterly time allocation well before the start of their next quarterly allocation. This can happen if the computations require more time than anticipated or if more case studies need to be completed. Under such circumstances, the project PIs can request additional time with proper justification via the web-form here. If a PI needs to request time for a quarter other than the current quarter, please note this in your request’s justification. Secondly, if a PI needs to request time on Blues specifically, please also note this in the justification. By default, time is allocated to Bebop unless otherwise noted.

The LCRC core team meets every Wednesday and reviews all time requests for both new and existing projects. The LCRC core team can grant additional time up to 150K core-hours with requests above this needing approval from the LCRC allocations committee. PIs are reminded that any unused additional time will also expire at the end of the quarter. For instance, if a PI requested 100K core-hours for the first quarter and used only 40K core-hours, 60K core-hours would be lost at the end of the quarter.

The web-form here is also used for requesting time for the entire next fiscal year after the first week of September. Quarterly allocations can still be made after the first quarter begins. PIs that require additional time after the first week of September for the current fiscal year (till the end of September), should send an email to support@lcrc.anl.gov requesting additional time with proper justification.
