Using the JARA partition
The JARA Partition consists of partitions with contingents from the high performance computers and supercomputers installed in Aachen and Jülich. The Partition was established in 2012 and the last call was in Q1/2023. The JARA Partition will end with the last computing time period on April 30, 2024. We strongly recommend to apply for the NHR project categories now for all larger projects. Employees from Jülich need a Principle Investigator (PI) with an affiliation from ANY German University. This could be the head of the institute who owns a corresponding professorship, for instance. Please contact us if you have any problems or questions in finding a suitable PI.
Applications for computing time on the JARA partition were submitted by many scientist of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich qualified in his or her respective field of research. Computing resources were allocated on the basis of independent referees' reports and according to the guidelines of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
Applying for computing time was possible twice a year at defined periods of time, see https://www.jara.org/en/research/center-for-simulation-and-data-sciences/jara-partition/applying-for-computing-time.
Technically, JARA Partition in Aachen used the same tools and processes as described in Project-based Management of Resources of the RWTH High Performance Computing. Please bear in mind
The JARA Partition in Jülich obey the rule of JSC and is not described here.
