Gauss Call 20 for Large-Scale HPC projects (Deadline Aug 13, 2018 17:00 CEST)
The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) provides computing power and services of the highest performance class for computational sciences and engineering at its three member sites in Garching (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, LRZ), Jülich (Jülich Supercomputing Centre, JSC), and Stuttgart (High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart, HLRS).
Projects are classified as “Large-Scale”, if they require 35 million core-hours or more per year. For these large-scale projects a competitive review and resource allocation process is established by the GCS. Requests below this limit and requests for test projects will be directly processed by the individual member centres. A "Call for Large-Scale Projects" is published by the Gauss Centre twice a year.
The current 20th call will be open
July 9th to August 13th 2018, 17:00 o’clock CEST (strict deadline)
The current call covers the period 1 November 2018 to 31 October 2019 and includes access to SuperMUC-NG, LRZ’s next supercomputer, after the start of user operation (planned for early 2019).
Eligible are applications from German universities and publicly funded German research institutions, e.g., Max-Planck Society, and Helmholtz Association.
Application for a large-scale project should be performed by filling in the appropriate electronic application form that can be accessed from the GCS web page
