Applications for computing time on the JARA-HPC Partition

Applications for computing time on the JARA-HPC Partition for the next computing time period (May 01, 2016 to April 30, 2018) can be submitted from January 23 until February 20, 2017, 5pm CET. The JARA-HPC Partition consists of contingents on the high-performance computers and supercomputers installed at RWTH Aachen (CLAIX) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JUQUEEN and JURECA). Since the establishment in 2012 the Partition has been gradually expanded and in November 2016 it reached a computing capacity of over 1 PFlops. more

The Best Poster Award of the "6th IEEE Symposium on Large Data Analysis and Visualization 2016" was awarded to Dr. Tom Vierjahn for his poster "Correlating Sub-Phenomena in Performance Data in the Frequency Domain". Tom Vierjahn is a senior researcher in Prof. Torsten Kuhlen's group, who is also a steering board member for JARA-HPC's Cross-Sectional Group "Immersive Visualization".

JARA-HPC "Simulation" events

The JARA presentations and workshops on simulation inform interested students and scientists of all faculties about events related to simulation sciences.


As part of a cooperation project between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JARA), a new database was created, that provides comprehensive overview of the main research areas in energy of the two institutions.
