When applying for all GCS computing time allocations, applicants must follow the guidelines for how to apply and be mindful of deadlines for applications.
Large-scale projects are characterised by projects that require a large amount of core hours over longer periods of time. Projects are classified as "large-scale" if they require at least a combined 35 million core-hours per year on the systems available at the GCS member centres HLRS, JSC, and LRZ.
Large-scale projects go through a competitive review and resource allocation process established by the GCS. A "Call for Large-Scale Projects" is published by the Gauss Centre twice a year. Dates for closure of calls are usually at the end of winter and at the end of summer of each year. (more)
(A) Hazel Hen/Hawk and SuperMUC-NG:
Applications for GCS regular projects on the HLRS and LRZ HPC systems can be submitted at any time (so-calledrolling calls).
Applications for GCS regular projects on the JSC HPC system can be submitted twice a year at the same time as GCS large-scale projects (so-called cut-off calls).
The application procedures slightly differ for the three supercomputers and location sites. Therefore, please carefully read the following additional information on “How to Apply” for the individual GCS HPC systems:
General Requirements for project applications:
Applications should be submitted in English.
Please structure the project application in the following way:
Template: Project Proposal for Tier 0/Tier1 HPC Access at GCS (PDF, 300 kB)
Template: Project Proposal for Tier 0/Tier1 HPC Access at GCS (docx, 239 kB)
Template: Project Proposal for Tier 0/Tier1 HPC Access at GCS as a TeX file (FileTypex-tar, 408 kB)
Please make sure that all data is complete and double check it.
The project description has to be uploaded via the application link as PDF file. Please do not include any supporting material in the project description. → If you wish to add supplemental material to the project description, please submit this information with a separate PDF file.
GCS Large-Scale Projects
For all projects supported by a computing time grant through a GCS Large-Scale Call, the following acknowledgment should be added to each project report as well to each paper submitted to external publications:
The authors gratefully acknowledge the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing e.V. (www.gauss-centre.eu) for funding this project by providing computing time on the GCS Supercomputer XXX (name of HPC system) at XXX (High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart/HLRS, www.hlrs.de, Leibniz Supercomputing Centre Garching/LRZ, www.lrz.de, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, www.fz-juelich.de/jsc)
