18th Call for Large-Scale Projects Open

GCS NewsFlash 13/2017

The 18th 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 Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre at Garching near Munich (LRZ), until August 14, 2017, at 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 SystemsThe three GCS HPC systems deliver in sum a peak performance of currently more than 20 Petaflops. From left: System JUQUEEN of JSC (BlueGene/Q-System), SuperMUC of LRZ (IBM System x iDataPlex and Lenovo NeXtScale WCT) and Hazel Hen of HLRS (CRAY XC40).
