Reporting Obligations for Regular GCS/NIC and ESM Projects

A status report or final report, respectively, is necessary, if you apply for a continuation of a previous project or if you have completed a previous project. It must be uploaded as a separate PDF-file in the online application form and should contain the following information:

  • The concrete results which were obtained in the last computing period.
  • Statements about the use of the computer in your project with respect to performance, scaling behaviour, main storage requirements and disk storage requirements.
  • Articles which were published in peer reviewed journals in this time (no conference contributions or posters).
  • Ph.D. theses which were completed within the project (please give name of the author and the subject of the thesis).
  • Attractive colour pictures which were created in your project to present your results, which can be interesting for a general public. We would ask your permission to use these pictures in publications about GCS, NIC or JSC.

Final Report
This report is not allowed to exceed a maximum of 18 pages and must be submitted when a project is finished. It should focus on the scientific and technical outcome. Moreover, it should explain, how the granted computing time was spend within the project. The report is due four weeks after the end of the allocation period. Form and content of the reports are similar to the status reports (please see templates below). Please send the final report in electronical form to the
