logoToday the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) in Germany announced the award of close to 1 billion compute core hours to scientifically outstanding national research projects. As part of their 13th bi-annual Calls for Large-Scale Projects, the award will power 16 simulation projects from scientific fields such as Scientific Engineering, Meteorology, Astrophysics, Elementary Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, and Theoretical Chemistry GCS’s HPC systems.

The fact that requests for computing time on our HPC systems remain on such a high level confirms the added value our cutting-edge HPC technology provides to the community of national researchers and scientists,” explains Professor Dr.-Ing. Siegfried Wagner, Chairman of the GCS Scientific Steering Committee. “The technological possibilities available today paired with the expertise of both the highly skilled users as well as the first-class technological support provided by the HPC centres supply an excellent foundation to support research activities of highest complexity. This feeds justified hope for more break-through findings achieved with the help of our HPC systems”, affirms Professor Wagner.
