Extra allocation

It is possible to apply for EXTRA allocations during an on-going allocation period. This is meant for existing projects that were already given an allocation, but that run out of computing time before the end of the period.

Projects that consume their allocations before the end of the allocation period may apply for additionalresources to meet their needs.
Such applications are simple and require only a short justification, and can be submitted at any time during a period.

Applications are normally processed within 5 working days. It is good practice to submit such requests in due time before the resources are consumed and the urgencybecomes precarious. Allocation is subject to resource availability.

Note: A request for additional allocations is only possible for existing projects in the on-going allocation period. Once the allocation periods that were applied for in an application have expired, one must submit a new application for the project (with updated project description, resource requests, etc).

It is not possible to prolong the validity of an application with additional allocation periods.
