Jülich Supercomputing Centre
The John von Neumann Institute for Computing (NIC) is a joint foundation of Forschungszentrum Jülich and Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY to support supercomputer-aided scientific research and development. In April 2006, the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung GSI joined NIC as a contract partner. NIC took over the functions and tasks of the High Performance Computer Centre (HLRZ) established in 1987 and continues that centre's successful work in the field of supercomputing and its applications. NIC's mission comprises
Homepage of JSC
- Provision of supercomputing resources for projects in science, research and industry in the fields of modelling and computer simulation including their methods.
Research proposals can be submitted by German scientists and by projects partners in the EU projects DEISA and I3HP.
There is also an offer to the new member states of the European Union.
The supercomputers with the required information technology infrastructure (software, data storage, networks) are operated by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in Jülich and by the Centre for Parallel Computing at DESY in Zeuthen.
- Supercomputer-oriented research and development in selected fields of physics and other sciences, especially in elementary-particle physics, by research groups for supercomputing applications.
Research groups exist for high energy physics and for computational biology and biophysics.
- Education and training in the fields of scientific computing by symposia, workshops, summer schools, seminars, courses, and guest programs for scientists and students.
