LRZ Application Laboratories

LRZ hosts one of the Top500 HPC systems, SuperMUC and also a vast range of Linux cluster segments for the regional researchers. It is always a major challenge to fully exploit its huge computational resources. Our engagement to help the computational science communities with substantial high-level technical efforts to leverage such massively parallel resource is inevitable.

To strengthen this engagement LRZ has recently taken an initiative to focus on domain specific community-oriented support and research infrastructure. These entities, known as 'Application Labs', will play a leading role in supporting the scientific communities to bring the most out of their applications exploiting the LRZ HPC facilities.

Currently the following scientific focus fields are selected:
