OutlineJHPCN calls for joint research projects for fiscal year 2024. The joint research has to have two or more research members and be managed by a researcher of organizations in Japan. You have to use at least one of the computer resources of the member institutions or have a researcher of the member institutions in the research group. Projects are welcome from any research area.
The researchers of accepted projects will be able to use the computer resources of the member institutions and the “mdx” for free in the scope of the rule. (See Appendixes for the details of available resources) The “mdx” is an information infrastructure created mainly to accumulate and utilize knowledge related to data science, which is co-managed by nine universities and 2 research institutions, within which the member institutions are included. There are cases where the expenses for publishing research results are supported, for example, the travel expenses to join conferences in abroad, the expenses to publish books on research results and to hold symposiums related to the research. Accepted research projects will also be a chance to make networks or expand your research/invention by joining or doing presentations in JHPCN symposiums.
Since the member institutions have enrolled leading researchers, acceleration of joint research projects is possible through collaboration with these researchers. You can get introductions to the researchers of the member institutions, if you hope to, please contact the JHPCN office in advance. If you have in mind a researcher with whom you want to conduct joint research, you can ask the member institution of the researcher in question.
These joint research projects for the fiscal year 2024 will be implemented from April 2024 to March 2025. The web application deadline is 10 AM (JST), 9 January, 2024. We expect and appreciate as many applications as possible.

Difference from last call
- Change of Application Form and its numbering
The Word/TeX form for research information is now called "Application Form 1" and the Excel form for proposal information such as resources to be used is now called "Application Form 2". The numbers are reversed from last year. Please be sure to use the 2024 form, as it has been updated.
- Addition of "The calculation basis of resources and purpose of the usage" item in Application Form 1.
An item "The calculation basis of resources and purpose of the usage" has been added to Application Form 1. Note that this item is not included in the page limit.
This item is an important evaluation item in the review process for proposals applying for theme area (1) and use of HPCI resources or mdx with the private wallet plan for the theme area (2). Thus, so please describe this item clearly. In case sufficient information is not provided, the overall evaluation of your proposal may be lowered.
However, regardless of the theme area of the proposal, if the proposal is a new proposal and the total amount of applied resources is less than 1MJPY, it is not necessary to provide the calculation basis of resources. If you are applying for mdx in the theme are (2) using the shared wallet plan, you do not need to calculation basis of resources for the cost of mdx (if you are also applying for HPCI resources, please provide calculation basis of resources of HPCI resources). Even if the calculation basis of resources is not required, the purpose of use must be stated. For details, please refer to Section 7.5 of the Call for proposal.
- Added explanation of theme areas
We have added an explanation that research that uses real data to improve models for computational science simulations should be submitted in the theme area (1). For details, please refer to the section 1 of the call for proposal.
- Conditions for Participants
Not only graduate students but also undergraduate students can participate as co-researchers. For details, please refer to the section 4 of the call for proposal.
- Addition of mdx budget plan
Proposals that use much of computing resources of mdx can now be submitted by specifying the required budget amount. In this case, please select the private-wallet plan (the previous plan is now called the shared wallet plan). For details, please refer to Appendix 1 (2) of the call for proposal.
- High priority resource setting
Even when the project is accepted, the total amount of the available resources can be reduced from the proposed amount at some rate. In this case, as for the projects which use some computer resources, the amount of all of the HPCI resources and mdx, fees of which are separately calculated, will be reduced at equal rate in principle. However, in case that the project cannot be carried out because of the reduction in the amount of some resource, the resource can be given priority (“High Priority Resource”). For details, please refer to the section 7.4 of the call for proposal.
