The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science provides a portfolio of high-performance computing facilities housing some of the world’s most advanced supercomputers. These leadership computing facilities enable world-class research for significant advances in science. Open to researchers from academia, government labs, and industry, the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) Program is the major means by which the scientific community gains access to the most capable, most productive, fastest open science supercomputers in the nation. The program aims to accelerate scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering. 


INCITE is currently soliciting proposals of research for awards on LCF HPC machines for calendar year (CY) 2025. LCF HPC machines include the two exascale systems Frontier and Aurora and the 44-petaflop HPE Apollo Gen-10+ system Polaris. Up to 60% of the allocatable computing time will be made available on each of these machines for CY 2025.  Proposals may request periods of performance from one to three years.


As of 2022, INCITE is committing 10% of allocatable time to an Early Career Track. The goal of the Early Career Track is to encourage the next generation of high-performance computing researchers. Researchers within ten years from earning their PhD (PhD on or after December 31, 2014) and who have not been a previous INCITE PI may choose to apply.  More information can be found at

INCITE Proposal Writing Webinars  

To help you prepare an INCITE proposal or to learn more about the program, two INCITE Proposal Writing Webinars will be offered on April 23, 2024, from 9 - 11 a.m. CST, and April 30, 2024, from 1 - 3 p.m. CST. The two-hour webinar will also include discussion on the Director’s Discretionary Program, a way to request early access to port, tune, and scale your codes in preparation for an INCITE application. For more details and early registration for either of these events, see


Early Access

Director’s Discretionary requests for access to Frontier can be submitted any time. Director Authors often use this access to generate benchmarking data in preparation for the INCITE call for proposals. See for links to the Director’s Discretionary programs at the ALCF and the OLCF.
