19th Call for Large-Scale Projects Open

GCS NewsFlash 01/2018

The 19th 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 February 23, 2018, 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: JUWELS ("Jülich Wizard for European Leadership Science", successor to IBM BlueGene/Q system JUQUEEN - A modular system, to be set up in several steps. In the first step, the cluster module (CPU) will be established and will be available for this call. Its 2500 nodes are equipped with dual-socket Intel-Skylake Platinum 8168. About 2 % of the nodes will be equipped additionally with 4 Volta GPUs yielding a total performance of about 12 PF/s.)
