17th Call for Large-Scale Projects Open

GCS NewsFlash 03/2017

The 17th call for GCS large-scale projects has been issued. Scientists can apply for computing time on the three GCS HPC Systems installed at the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre at Garching near Munich (LRZ), and the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) until February 20, 2017, 17:00hrs. Eligible for "Large Scale" projects, which require in total at least 35 million core-hours per year on the GCS HPC systems, are applications from German universities and publicly funded German research institutions. For further details on How To Apply for Computing Time, please see here.

The HPC systems of the GCS centres, availble to serve the researchers, are the following:

  • HLRS: Hazel Hen (Cray XC40 system)
  • LRZ: SuperMUC (IBM System X iDataplex/Lenovo Next Scale system)
  • JSC: JUQUEEN (IBM BlueGene/Q system)

The 3 GCS HPC SystemsDie Höchstleistungsrechner des Gauss Centre for Supercomputing erbringen derzeit zusammen eine Rechenleistung von mehr als 20 Petaflops.
