GCS - Application for Computing Time

You can either directly select the compute time call from the following menu or you can use the form below, which will guide you to the suitable call.

Please, choose project type and required resources.

GCS large-scale projects are characterised by projects that require a large amount of computing time over longer periods of time.
In detail, projects are classified as large-scale if they require at least 2% of the systems' annual production in terms of estimated availability. This requirement can be translated into different values. For the supercomputers Hawk and SuperMUC-NG we give the requirement in terms of core-hours. Thus, the projects' minimum requirements should be the following for these two systems:
  • >= 100 Mcore-h on Hawk or
  • >= 45 Mcore-h on SuperMUC-NG
JUWELS consists of two different modules with different hardware architectures. Thus, the minimum computing time requirements for GCS-LS projects cannot be coherently specified by use of core-hours, but EFLOP, based on the system's peak performance, is used instead. The projects' minimum requirements summed over all requested modules should be:

  • >= 45000 EFLOP per year on JUWELS
Please refer to the JUWELS fact sheet for further information.
Projects which do not fall into the category large scale are called GCS regular projects.
