NOTE: New account creations are suspended as of April 1, 2013.
This page is kept active for historical purposes, but any account creation requests will be rejected.
In order to access the Social Science Gateway, you will need to request an account. (For accounts on the Synthetic Data Server (SDS), please see this page). In general, accounts will be created if satisfying one of the following criteria, in descending order of preference:
- projects with an existing XSEDE allocation
- projects with a pending XSEDE allocation
- projects that prepare a Census RDC proposal (see the Census Bureau’s Center for Economic Studies website for details)
- other NSF-funded projects with a future XSEDE-related activity
We note that these systems are for users who are comfortable with advanced data analysis. Our systems run Linux, as the vast majority of XSEDE resources, and users are provided access to several statistical software packages. We do not provide support in the use of the statistical software, nor in the the use of any of the data available on our systems. Our support is limited to the the use of the job scheduler, and to the porting and transferring of results to XSEDE resources.
Accounts are requested by filling out BOTH forms below:
- Provide us with some basic information regarding the project, which we will need to assess your request.
- Fill out our project’s Account Request form at the Cornell Center for Advanced Computing (CAC). This will allow us to create your computer account.
We cannot authorize any account requests until BOTH forms are filled out.
- we will setup your compute account.
- You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org that will contain your login and password information for the first logon. You will be directed to the “First login” page, which outlines the next steps.
