Overview of Compute Project Categories and Links to Submission Forms

Kurzinformation

Please find a tabular description of the available project categories and links to the submission forms below.

The maximum available quota for RWTH-M projects has been increased by a factor of 2x starting Jan 1, 2019.
At the same time this is the minimum for future JARA-HPC projects.

Prinicipal Investigators are supposed to be leading scientists with a doctoral degree or a permanent position who are qualified to also take part in the scientific reviewing process.

Please note, if the PI uses a trusted email address (fz-juelich or rwth-aachen domain) the submission can be finalized by the PI online (without paper).
Otherwise do not forget to also email a printed, signed and then scanned version of your proposal to hpc-projects@itc.rwth-aachen.de using the mail subject
  "Application for Compute Time No. xxxx" after the online submission!

(*) Applicants are responsible for providing any necessary software licence, please find more information here.

(**) GPU resources are not accounted for themselves, but the resources of the host processors are accounted for. Applications requesting a higher amount of GPU resources are to be submitted in the corresponding larger project categories (RWTH-M, JARA-HPC, BUND)

(***) While technical reviewing and setting up the project typically takes up to one week, scientific reviewing depends on the response time of the reviewers and typically takes about one  month. Therefore an initial quota is set up when the technical review is finished. It is increased as approved by the reviewers. 

(****) 2020.03.18: The KNL nodes are not integrated into SLURM so you do not need a project to use it; ask us for getting access to KNL nodes. The GPU nodes are now a common architecture and handled in usual projects (like RWTH).
