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 call for proposals for the next computing time period (May 01, 2016 to April 30, 2017) will open at the end of January 2016. The deadline for submitting proposals is February 29, 2016 at 5pm.
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.
To apply for computing time on the JARA-HPC partition, please proceed as follows:
- First write a detailed project description and - in case of a project extension - a status report. Please adhere to the guidelines on form, content and scope of project descriptions and status reports.
- Complete the electronic questionnaire and attach the project description as well as any additional documents to the questionnaire as pdf files.
- With the finalization of your project application a form is created. Please print this form, sign it and send it to the Coordination Office for the Allocation of Computing Time.
