For More Information

For additional information, please visit the program’s websites for


This programme provides programming support for computational projects of exceptional potential that will have lasting impact and value and that require significant support from SHARCNET to proceed.  For the current round, applications are encouraged that satisfy the programme objectives and priority will be given to proposals that:

  • Propose to develop innovative visualization applications and techniques that emphasize the visualization of large datasets especially using distributed/parallel visualization/ rendering techniques.
  • Propose a programme of work that will enable innovative projects from disciplines that are traditionally not major users of HPC.


Faculty members with a valid SHARCNET account.  (Faculty can register for a SHARCNET account at any time.  Users must also be registered with Compute Canada.) 

Funding Availability

SHARCNET will provide programming and development support by one or more SHARCNET personnel.  Projects are expected to last 2-4 months, with SHARCNET personnel spending a maximum of 50% of their time on the project.  Longer projects will be considered, but will be held to greater scrutiny. 

Maximum Project Value

No dollar value.  

Indirect Costs


Project Duration

Two to four months, although longer projects will be considered (see above).

Special Notes

Applications from teams of faculty are especially encouraged, especially if they are interdisciplinary and/or inter-institutional.  All applicants must consult with one of the SHARCNET HPC Consultants before submitting to ensure that it meets the requirements for eligibility in the support programme and contains sufficient detail to justify their demand for support.


If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
