Apply Now for the 30th Call for Large-Scale Allocations
Newsflash 06/2023 –

In July Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) opened the 30th call for GCS Large-Scale Projects on the GCS high-performance computing (HPC) systems, Hawk of HLRS, JUWELS of JSC (cluster module and booster module), and SuperMUC-NG of LRZ. Scientists can now apply for computing time until August 14, 2023, at 5:00 PM CET.

GCS Large-Scale Projects are characterized by projects that require a large amount of computing time, meaning a minimum of 2 percent of a system’s annual production in terms of estimated availability, over a period of 12 months. Researchers at German universities and publicly funded German research institutions are eligible to apply.

Interested researchers can apply to gain access to GCS’ leading HPC systems:

High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS): Hawk

Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC): JUWELS

Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ): SuperMUC-NG

For further details on how to apply for computing time or to learn more about the technical details of the three GCS HPC systems, please visit the HPC Access page.

All GCS HPC systems are jointly funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, with 50 percent contributed by the federal states of Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, and North Rhine-Westphalia, respectively.


About GCS Large-Scale Projects: All 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. Deadlines for calls are usually at the end of winter and at the end of summer of each year. An overview of the approved GCS Large-Scale Projects is available at
