The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) at Forschungszentrum Jülich enables scientists and engineers to solve highly complex, grand challenges in science and engineering within collaborative infrastructures for both supercomputing and grid technologies.
The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) at Forschungszentrum Jülich enables scientists and engineers to solve highly complex, grand challenges in science and engineering with supercomputing and collaborative infrastructures.
The Jülich Supercomputing Centre at Forschungszentrum Jülich has been operating supercomputers since 1987. Computing time on JSC machines is available to researchers in Germany and Europe through a competitive scientific peer review process.
JSC has approximately 250 experts working on all aspects of supercomputing and simulation. The centre’s main research focus is mathematical modelling and numerical, parallel algorithms. Staff and users collaborate to develop these algorithms in domain-specific simulation laboratories, and these innovations are ultimately used in neuroscience, computational biology, materials science, as well as energy and climate research applications. In the realm of computer science, JSC researchers focus on modular supercomputing, cluster computing, performance analysis of applications, visualization, computational steering and federated infrastructures.
In funded projects and co-operations with hardware and software firms, such as IBM, Intel and ParTec, as well as NVIDIA, JSC drives development towards exascale systems and tackles the challenges associated with scaling up applications for next-generation supercomputers.

JSC currently operates JUWELS, a modular HPC system co-designed by Atos, ParTec, Mellanox, and JSC, as its flagship supercomputer. For more information on system performance and specs, please visit our HPC infrastructure page.
