JARA CSD Workshop & SAB Meeting

We cordially invite you to the next JARA CSD Workshop that takes place together with the Scientific Advisory Board Meeting and in cooperation with the MSS Profile Area at the Super C, RWTH Aachen.

Scientists from RWTH Aachen University and FZ Jülich will meet on November 27 and November 28, 2023, to discuss the role and future of simulation and data science. Topics will include next generation computing like quantum and excascale computing, research software engineering/ software as an infrastructure, inter-institutional and interdisciplinary collaborations and research-oriented training across all career levels.

We are looking forward to your participation.

If you would like to participate in the CSD workshop please send an email to

Panel discussion on Quantum Computing for Computational Engineering

Experts of FZJ and RWTH discuss the potential of quantum computing for computational engineering. When will qubit technology be ready for modern simulation science? What are the challenges that need to be overcome? What is the expected gain and which tasks will benefit in particular? Will quantum computing determine the next generation of HPC simulations?
The panel discussion provides a platform of exchange and aims at identifying future cooperation opportunities between both communities.

Events in NHR4CES


NHR4CES implements a comprehensive multi-layered support, training, and consulting concept that is geared towards providing specific help according to the users’ demands. 

The Cross-Sectional Groups (CSGs) and Simulation and Data Labs (SDLs) are two important pillars of our support activities in NHR4CES. Both CSGs and SDLs provide concepts and materials for training, for on-site as well as remote educational offerings.

Have a look at the offered trainings and workshops.


JARA-Day for the opening of the JARA-CSD

To celebrate the founding of the JARA Center for Simulation and Data Science (JARA-CSD), the RWTH Aachen and the Forschungszentrum Juelich held a joint JARA-Day. With the Center, the JARA partners account for the increasing significance of simulation- and datascience. The JARA-CSD enables scientists from Aachen and Juelich to establish a closer research cooperation in this scientific field.

During the scientific symposium, the focus of JARA-CSD was presented by means of short presentations and posters.
