Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is soliciting the next round of proposals for computer time on Anton 2, a special-purpose supercomputer for molecular dynamics (MD) simulation designed by D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES). Anton 2 enables biomolecular simulations running nearly 100 times faster than the state of the art on traditional supercomputers. Anton 2 is made available without cost by DESRES and supported by NIH for non-commercial research use by universities and other not-for-profit institutions. Proposals are due on Thursday June 29, 2023.

For detailed application instructions please go to:


 To help with the proposal submission, we will offer two webinars on May 25, 2023:

2:30-3:30 PM (EDT) How to Write a Successful Anton 2 Proposal Register here

3:30-5:00 PM (EDT) Anton 2 Enhanced Sampling Techniques Register here

More information about the webinars will be available at: 


Please feel free to share this information with anyone interested in performing long-timescale MD simulations.

Best regards, 

The Anton 2 team
