This form is used to submit Education allocation proposals for the RCC Midway Compute Cluster, which are designed to support short-term training, University of Chicago courses, and workshops that require access to high-performance computing capabilities. The RCC can provide temporary user accounts for participants who do not already have access to RCC resources.

  • User accounts for course or workshop participants are available through the RCC. Please provide, with your proposal, an estimate of the number of participants and the expected resources needed (SUs, storage, software, access to GPU-enabled nodes, or access to the RCC's visualization lab). If accounts and computing are needed for only a portion of the course or workshop, please provide those dates, or an estimate.
  • Once the education allocation has been accepted and the participant list finalized, the RCC will request the list of CNetIDs for University of Chicago participants, and names and birthdates for visitors in order to provide them with temporary CNetIDs. Access to Midway will expire at the conclusion of the course or workshop.
This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.
