SNIC SENS Medium 2017


This round has been closed as all proposals have been handled.

This SNIC-SENS round is for medium-scale projects involving sensitive personal data on the Bianca system.

A medium project can request up to 150 TB and 100,000 core-hours/month on average. PI's must be employed at a Swedish institute of higher education at least at the level of assistant professor. If the PI is not affiliated with Uppsala University, it is the PI's responsibility that a Personal data assistant agreement (personuppgiftbiträdesavtal) exists (contact Ann-Charlotte Sonnhammer with questions).

Until the first SENSE Large round is announced, a small number of larger projects may be approved in this round.

For a SENS Medium project, the abstract should include a brief description of the planned work and a clear statement that the work involves sensitive personal data. Requested resources, both GB of storage and compute hours, should be motivated in as much detail as possible. A listing of necessary software is encouraged.

The actual project name, which will be used when you log in, is given in the name/Dnr field, and follows the pattern "sens20171XX". SNIC SENS Medium 2017 has a diary pattern that follows the general SNIC pattern, "SNIC 2017/21-XXX", which is not stored in SUPR but can be useful for official information requests.
