bwHPC: High Performance Computing in Baden-Württemberg

The aims are the provision of a state-wide HPC infrastructure, the coordination of federated support for users of high performance computing in the state of Baden-Württemberg and the implementation of all its related measures and activities.

This happens particularly by the project bwHPC-S5 which is part of the current implementation concept for HPC, DIC and LS2DM in Baden-Württemberg. bwHPC-S5 has been funded by the ministry of science, research and arts of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. The Universities of Freiburg, Heidelberg, Hohenheim, Konstanz, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Tübingen and Ulm, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, as well as the Universities of Applied Sciences in Stuttgart and Esslingen participate in the realization of the project.

Project's phase 1 is running for 30 months, i.e., 01 Jul 2018 until 31 Dec 2020.

Oct 01, 2016: Reminder: bwForCluster NEMO is production ready

The bwForCluster NEMO in Freiburg is available since 01.09.2016 to all scientists from the fields of Elementary Particle Physics, Neuroscience and Microsystems Engineering in Baden-Württemberg. We would be happy to welcome you as a use. NEMO is not yet completely filled with user jobs, meaning there is no significant waiting time in the queue to run your jobs.

For instructions to get started on NEMO, please see http://www.hpc.uni-freiburg.de/nemo/access.

On 14.07.2016, on the same day as the inauguration of the bwForCluster NEMO, the first NEMO user assembly took place. In particular, the prerequisites for getting access to NEMO and ideas for the scientific governance by the respective scientific domains were discussed, for more read here.
