GCS Large-Scale Projects from November

Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers, which at present are Hazel Hen (HLRS), JUQUEEN (JSC) – which will be replaced by its successor JUWELS in 2018 – and SuperMUC (LRZ). Large-scale projects are classified as those that require at least 35 million compute core hours (Mcore-h). During its October meeting at JSC, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to 30 projects from various scientific fields. Seven projects were granted 465 Mcore-h on Hazel Hen, 14 projects were granted 750 Mcore-h on JUQUEEN, and nine projects were granted 388 Mcore-h on SuperMUC. In total, GCS awarded about 1.6 billion compute core hours to large-scale projects. For more details of these projects, some of which utilize the resources of several centres, visit http://www.gauss-
