New GCS Large-Scale Projects in May 2018

Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers - currently Hazel Hen (HLRS), JUWELS (JSC, Jülich Wizard for European Leadership Science) which recently replaced its predecessor JUQUEEN, 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 DESY in Zeuthen, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to 17 projects from various scientific fields. Eight projects were granted 580 Mcore-h on Hazel Hen, four projects were granted 140 Mcore-h on JUWELS, and five projects were granted 340 Mcore-h on SuperMUC. In total, GCS awarded about 1 billion compute core hours to large-scale projects. For more details on these projects, visit
