New GCS Large-Scale Projects in May 2016
Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers, currently JUQUEEN (JSC), Hazel Hen (HLRS), and SuperMUC (LRZ). Projects are classified as large-scale if they require at least 35 million compute core hours. At its April meeting at JSC, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to 21 projects from various fields of the simulation sciences. Three projects were granted a total of about 440 million compute core hours on Hazel Hen, twelve projects were granted a total of about 610 million compute core hours on JUQUEEN, and eight projects were granted about 600 million compute core hours on SuperMUC. In total, more than 1.6 billion compute core hours have been awarded for GCS large-scale projects, which is a new all-time high. For more details on these projects, some of which utilize the resources of several centres, see https://www.gauss-centre.eu/results/large-scale-projects.
