Basic operation of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre until further notice

In accordance with the preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus published by the management of Forschungszentrum Jülich on 24 March, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre is adapting its range of services and switching to basic operations until further notice. Please note the information on the services and availability of our support teams.

Andreas Lintermann im Interview mit Johannes Döbbelt zum Projekt "Agency for Cognitive Computing"

Supercomputers for a structural change in the Rhineland region

How can supercomputers help us live and work in the future? Andreas Lintermann will give a video interview on 11 November to present the "Agency for Cognitive Computing" (ACC) project.

Supercomputer JUWELS


Jülich Supercomputing Centre operates computers of the highest performance class. The supercomputers JUWELS and JURECA are currently among the most powerful supercomputers in the world.


Quantum computing

Prof. Kristel Michielsen's group at JSC is working on methods and models with which complex quantum systems can be simulated on supercomputers.


Supercomputer Made in Jülich Setting New Benchmarks

Forschungszentrum Jülich’s upgraded supercomputer JUWELS is now capable of 85 petaflops. This is equivalent to 85 quadrillion computing operations per second or the computing power of more than 300,000 modern PCs. Thanks to its new booster module, JUWELS is able to massively expand the application limits of simulations and also offers the strongest platform in Europe for the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

Virtual Guest Student Programme in 2021

JSC will once again host a guest student programme in summer 2021, supported by CECAM. In light of the restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, the programme will run remotely for the second time. Students with a major in natural sciences, engineering, computer science, or mathematics will get the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different aspects of scientific computing. The programme will last ten weeks and take place remotely from 2 August to 8 October 2021. Application deadline is on 16 May.

Supercomputer JUWELS


JSC offers computer resources of the highest performance class to its users. With JUWELS and JURECA, it is one of the most powerful computer centres in Europe.
