Resource allocation competitions 2017


Compute Canada recently published an outline of the Resource Allocation Competitions for 2017. A major change this year is the new reference year. Allocations will now be awarded for the period of April 1st to April first of the following year, whereas  they were previously awarded for a calendar year. As a transitory measure, all allocations for 2016 will be extended to April 1, 2017.
