CIG administers a modest allocation on XSEDE resources to help CIG researchers perform small scale research tests and benchmarks, with the aim of obtaining their own XSEDE allocation.
Current allocation SUs:
as of 11 April 2017
Allocation expires 31 March 2018.
If you are a U.S. researcher and you wish to use CIG's XSEDE allocation, apply for an account:
