New GCS Large-Scale Projects

Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers JUQUEEN (JSC), HERMIT (HLRS), and SuperMUC (LRZ). Projects are classified as large-scale if they require at least 35 million core hours.

At its April meeting at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to seven projects. One project was granted a total of 70 million compute core hours on HERMIT and the other six projects were granted a total of about 314 million core hours on JUQUEEN. The projects come from the fields of astrophysics, chemistry, high-energy physics, and fluid dynamics. For more details on these projects, see
