Screening method

All applications are screened by the Screening Committee for Eligibility to Use the Supercomputer Systems of the Information Technology Center, The University of Tokyo (hereafter, “Screening Committee”). Applications for use that are deemed to be inconsistent with the objectives of corporate use will not be selected. In cases where there is a large number of applications, an order of priority will be assigned to projects based on the screening criteria.
