Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS)

The Institute for Advanced Simulation unites Simulation Sciences and supercomputing under one roof. Thus, disciplinary, methodic and technological competences can be combined to manage the future challenges in the Simulation Sciences.

The close cooperation of the scientific users with the staff of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, a section of the IAS, leads to a prolific usage of the highly attractive European supercomputing centre in Jülich - especially in method development and scientific visualisation.

It is planned to integrate further groups.

Managing Director

Prof. Dr. Stefan Blügel (IAS-1 / PGI-1)
Deputy: Prof. Dr. Stefan Sandfeld (IAS-9)
