The basis is provided by the periods Nov. 2012 – Oct. 2013 and May 2013 – April 2014.

In 2013, within the framework of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE Tier-0), 15 European projects were calculated on JUQUEEN. Most of the computing time – 52 % – was assigned to fundamental constituents of matter, followed by the research area of physical and analytical chemical sciences with 15 %.

The basis is provided by the periods Nov. 2012 – Oct. 2013 and May 2013 – April 2014.

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)
