Adjusted normal operations of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre as of 11 May 2020

In accordance with the preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus published by the management of Forschungszentrum Jülich on 7 May, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre is switching to adjusted normal operations and adjusting its range of services. Please note the information on the services and availability of our support teams.

Supercomputer JUWELS


Jülich Supercomputing Centre operates computers of the highest performance class. The supercomputers JUWELS and JURECA are currently among the most powerful supercomputers in the world.


Quantum computing

Prof. Kristel Michielsen's group at JSC is working on methods and models with which complex quantum systems can be simulated on supercomputers.


HPC resources for COVID-19 research

JSC offers unbureaucratic and fast support for COVID-19 research by providing supercomputing resources.



Offer for epidemiology research on COVID-19

JSC - together with its GCS partners and PRACE - offers computing time and support on its HPC facilities for research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Resources for studies dealing with the spreading of the virus or with research on a medical or molecular level are offered unbureaucratically and rapidly to corresponding experts.

Signet Helmholtz GPU Hackathon 2020

Helmholtz GPU Hackathon 2020

The next GPU Hackathon that takes place in Europe will take place at the Helmholtz Information and Data Science Academy (HIDA) in Berlin on September 14-18, 2020. The goal of the 5-day hands-on workshop is for current or prospective user groups of large-scale, GPU-accelerated systems to port their applications to GPU accelerators or to further optimize already ported applications. Deadline for submitting applications is July 14, 2020.

Supercomputer JUWELS


JSC offers computer resources of the highest performance class to its users. With JUWELS and JURECA, it is one of the most powerful computer centres in Europe.
