logo GaussThe Gauss Centre for Supercomputing just announced that seven outstanding scientific projects will be awarded almost 400 million processor core hours of supercomputing time as part of its 11th GCS Call for Large-Scale Projects.

Award Winners:

  • QCD thermodynamics and the phase diagram. Prof. Dr. Zoltan Fodor, Bergische Universität Wuppertal
  • Gravoturbulent Planetesimal Formation: A key to understand planet formation. Dr. H. Hubertus Klahr, MPI for Astronomy, Heidelberg
  • In Silico Exploration of Possible Routes to Prebiotic Peptide Synthesis by Ab Initio Metadynamics. Prof. Dr. Dominik Marx, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
  • Exploring the quark mass plane with open boundaries. Prof. Dr. Andreas Schäfer, Universität Regensburg
  • High-amplitude fluctuations of velocity and temperature gradients in turbulent convection. Prof. Dr. Jörg Schumacher, Technische Universität Ilmenau
  • Meson Scattering and Resonance Properties from Nf = 2+1+1 Lattice QCD. Prof. Dr. Carsten Urbach, Universität Bonn
  • Simulation of Jet Engine and Axial Fan Noise Turbulence Aeroacoustics. Dr. Matthias Meinke, RWTH Aachen University

In total, GCS has more than 10 Petaflops of computing power available. The awarded projects are distributed to the three GCS HPC systems: Hermit of High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), JUQUEEN of Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and SuperMUC of Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching near Munich (LRZ).
