Supercomputing Centers Will Expedite Access to Fight Coronavirus

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
MUNICH, March 17, 2020 — Effective immediately, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), the alliance of Germany’s three national supercomputing centers, will help researchers working on COVID-19 research gain expedited access to computing resources. This includes access to the petascale high-performance computing infrastructures at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ).

Researchers fighting the coronavirus can reach out to access GCS flagship supercomputers at HLRS, JSC, and LRZ. Gauss Centre for Supercomputing.

Recognizing the urgent need for new strategies to contain the global pandemic, the three GCS centers have committed to fast-tracking applications for COVID-19-related computing time to minimize hurdles during the application process. This expedited access applies to research at the molecular level to understand the virus and develop vaccines and therapeutics, epidemiological research to understand and forecast disease spread, and other related approaches aimed at understanding and halting the pandemic.

“Computational approaches can provide unique and critical insights into the biology and transmission of disease,” said Dieter Kranzlmüller, leader of the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre and GCS chair. “GCS is committed to doing everything it can to support the fight against the coronavirus, providing computing time as well as technical support to investigators working to contain its effects.”

Scientists interested in using supercomputing resources at one of the GCS centers should contact the following:
