Call for Proposals 2024-1: Access to HPC Resources at PC²

 |  Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC2)

Scientists qualified in their respective field of research can submit proposals for access to HPC resources operated by Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²). We offer multi-million core-hour projects on a recent generation of HPC systems with low-latency interconnect. PC² is one of nine compute centers in Germany in the NHR alliance (Nationales Hochleistungsrechnen). The main focus of Paderborn is on three important application compentence areas and their user communities: Atomistic SimulationsOptoelectronics and Quantum Photonics, and Machine Learning for Intelligent Systems. PC² recently put its first NHR large scale HPC system into operation.

PC² provides a portfolio of preinstalled applications and offers support for software installation/configuration of project-specific applications. We advise our users on using the resources in an efficient way. In particular, we provide consulting services for users from computational chemistry and solid-state physics. Furthermore, PC² encourages approximate computing and the acceleration of applications with Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA).
