Adjusted normal operations of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre as of 25 May 2021

In accordance with the preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus published by the management of Forschungszentrum Jülich on 21 May, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre is switching to adjusted normal operations on 25 May and adjusting its range of services. Please note the information on the services and availability of our support teams.

Supercomputer JUWELS


Jülich Supercomputing Centre operates computers of the highest performance class. The supercomputers JUWELS and JURECA are currently among the most powerful supercomputers in the world.


Quantum computing

Prof. Kristel Michielsen's group at JSC is working on methods and models with which complex quantum systems can be simulated on supercomputers.



Science: How Brain Research Makes New Demands on Supercomputing

In the latest issue of Science, Katrin Amunts and Thomas Lippert explain how advances in neuroscience demand high-performance computing technology and will ultimately need exascale computing power. The construction of a supercomputer capable of 10 to the power of 18 computing operations per second has been considered the next big step in supercomputing for many years.

Superrechner JUWELS

Measuring the AI Performance of Europe's Fastest Supercomputer

Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) wanted to know how Europe's fastest supercomputer performs when it comes to training neural networks. – and have subjected it to a new performance test for artificial intelligence, or AI for short. The enormous computing power is required, among other things, for the development of language models and weather forecasts with AI. The results were presented at the world's largest supercomputing conference, SC21.

Supercomputer JUWELS


JSC offers computer resources of the highest performance class to its users. With JUWELS and JURECA, it is one of the most powerful computer centres in Europe.
