New GCS Large-Scale Projects in November 2019

Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers – currently Hazel Hen/Hawk (HLRS), JUWELS (JSC), and SuperMUC-NG (LRZ). Projects are classified as large-scale if they require at least 35 million compute core hours (Mcore-h). During its October meeting at JSC, the GCS Peer Review Board decided to award the status of a large-scale project to 12 projects from various scientific fields. Three projects were granted 364 Mcore-h on Hawk, three projects were granted 84 Mcore-h on JUWELS, and six projects were granted 255 Mcore-h on SuperMUC. In total, the GCS awarded about 703 million compute core hours to large-scale projects. For more details of these projects, some of which utilize the resources of several centres, visit
