The basis is provided by the periods Nov. 2011 – Oct. 2012 and May 2012 – April 2013.

In 2012, within the framework of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), 21 European projects were calculated on JUGENE / JUQUEEN. Most of the computing time – 48 % – was assigned to basic physics research, followed by the research area of medizine and life sciences with 16 %.

The basis is provided by the periods Nov. 2011 – Oct. 2012 and May 2012 – April 2013.

The Jülich supercomputers are used extensively by users outside Forschungszentrum Jülich. The computing time is allocated by independent science committees.

GCS: Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (association of the three national supercomputing centres JSC, HLRS and LRZ)

NIC: John von Neumann Institute for Computing (national allocation body, funded by the three Helmholtz Centres FZJ, DESY, GSI)

GRS: German Research School for Simulation Sciences

PRACE: Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (European HPC infrastructure) DEISA: Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (European HPC infrastructure, forerunner of PRACE)

* The number of users was lower in 2012 than in the previous years, because an experimental facility ('Big Karl') was taken out of operation.
