Application for an Intel/EAPF LittleFe

Notes:

  • Flavors of application:
    • Designated: Assembled unit delivered to your institution.
    • OU Build-out: Attend the Intermediate Parallel Programming and Cluster Computing workshop at OU on XXX
    • SC11 Build-out: Attend the Build-out hosted by the SC Education Program at SC11 in Seattle
  • Items the three application types have in common:
    • Individual and institutional commitment as shown with a letter outlining their commitment to incorporating the LittleFe/BCCD into their curriculum and to the development of new parallel programming or cluster computing curriculum modules. On institutional letterhead signed by someone(s) with the authority to make those commitments.
    • Take-back clause, that is after one year of quarterly check-ins if the plans outlined in the letter have not been met we can recall the unit.
      This and related policies will need to be vetted by the "granting agency", ACM/EAPF.  Check with Donna Capo.
      We also need to identify who pays shipping, if take-back is necessary.
  • Items that are different for each application:
    • The build-it-yourself options require that a team of two people (faculty and student or two faculty) apply.

Designated

  • This option is only available to institutions selected by representatives of Intel and the SC Education Program. Between 5 and 10 LittleFe units will be available through this mechanism. Institutions can request to be part of the OU or SC11 build group.
