Challenges of forecasting COVID-19 during the 2nd wave

In "A pre-registered short-term forecasting study of COVID-19 in Germany and Poland during the second wave" published in Nature Communication scientists from JSC together with colleagues from Europe and the USA analyze their predictions collected for Germany and Poland as part of the German-Polish forecasting hub during the second wave of COVID-19 (12 October – 19 December 2020).

JURECA-DC

Supercomputer for Large Data Volumes

Forschungszentrum Jülich upgraded the modular supercomputer JURECA which is now capable of 23.5 quadrillion computations per second (petaflops). One particular focus of the new system is on processing gigantic volumes of data. This was achieved by installing the module JURECA-DC – “DC” stands for “data-centric” – delivered by the French vendor Atos and operated by the cluster software of the German company ParTec.

Supercomputer JUWELS

Supercomputers

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.
