New GCS Large-Scale Projects in May

Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers – currently Hazel Hen (HLRS), JUQUEEN (JSC) and SuperMUC (LRZ). Projects are classified as large-scale if they require at least 35 million compute core hours (Mcore-h). During its April meeting at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to 32 projects from various scientific fields. Seven projects were granted 796 Mcore-h on Hazel Hen, 16 projects were granted 805 Mcore-h on JUQUEEN, and nine projects were granted 547 Mcore-h on SuperMUC. In total, the GCS awarded more than 2.1 billion compute core hours to large-scale projects. For more details of these projects, some of which utilize the resources of several centres, visit
