Most of you have probably seen the NSF Dear Colleague Letter regarding resource contributions of NSF-funded infrastructure to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) research. We have obtained permission from NSF to join this effort and extend the range of Chameleon supported projects to include projects working on how to model and understand the spread of COVID-19 for a limited time.
This means that you may see increased usage of the system, potentially even some non-standard usage. It also means that if you have colleagues working on COVID-19 related projects whose needs match the resources Chameleon provides you may encourage them to apply for system usage as their projects are now likely to be supported. Otherwise, all usual policies stay in place and your research and use of the system should not be impacted.
