Darter, funded by The University of Tennessee, is provided to facilitate and support compute intensive research within the scientific community. To receive an allocation on Darter users must apply through the NICS Director's Discretionary Allocation process.
Director's Discretionary Allocations
NICS offers Director Discretionary awards to university affiliates, workshops and classes, underrepresented groups, industrial partners, and to researchers for which a special agreement has already been established. Additional researchers may be added to the project with the permission of the principal investigator. Maximum allocated hours will depend on the resource requested.
