Applications for computing time on the JARA-HPC partition can be submitted by any scientist of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich qualified in his or her respective field of research. Computing resources are being allocated in accordance with the criteria and procedures of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
Prospective users can apply for computing time twice a year at defined periods of time.
The next computing time period will be from May 01, 2017 to April 30, 2018. Proposals can be submitted at the end of February 2017.
Independent national and international experts assess each proposal for computing time. According to regulations of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) the JARA-HPC Vergabegremium (VGG) determines detailed scientific and technical criteria for the assessment of proposals for computing time.
The VGG is composed of 4 experienced scientists from RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich each:
Prof. Dr. Gerhard Gompper (Vorsitzender, ICS-2, IAS-2)
Prof. Dr. Paul Gibbon (JSC)
Dr. Gebhard Günther (IEK-7)
Prof. Dr. Heinz Pitsch (Vorsitzender, ITV)
Dieter an Mey (IT Center)
Prof. Paolo Bientinesi, Ph.D. (AICES)
Dr. Matthias Meinke (AIA)
The VGG is also being supported by experts on operating supercomputers from both facilities.
RWTH scientists with a need for less than 1.2 Mio Core-h computing time on the RWTH Compute Cluster are kindly requested to place their application with the RWTH IT Center. Please find more information here. There are no specific deadlines.
