New GCS Large-Scale Projects in November 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), which replaced its predecessor JUQUEEN last May, and SuperMUC/SuperMUC-NG (LRZ). Large-scale projects are classified as such if they require at least 35 million compute core hours (Mcore-h). During its October meeting at JSC, the GCS Peer Review Board took the decision to award large-scale project status to 13 projects from various scientific fields. Two projects were granted 186 Mcore-h on Hazel Hen; three projects were granted 124 Mcore-h on JUWELS; and eight projects were granted 507 Mcore-h on SuperMUC. In total, the GCS awarded around 817 million compute core hours to large-scale projects. For more details on these projects, please visit
