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 more than 35 million core hours.
At its October meeting at JSC, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to thirteen projects. Two projects were granted a total of 82 million compute core hours on SuperMUC, another two projects were granted a total of 165 million compute core hours on HERMIT, and the other nine projects were granted a total of about 506 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 http://www.gauss-centre.eu/large-scale.
