Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Rotunda, building 16.4, room 301

With JUQUEEN, Forschungszentrum Jülich positions itself again as a leading site for scientific calculations. We are proud to provide again a supercomputer of the highest performance class and energy efficiency to our users. Scientist in Germany and Europe use JUQUEEN for their research and espially the science and our region and in Northrhine-Westfalia (NRW) can profit from its capability.

We would like to invite you for the festive inauguration of the supercomputer JUQUEEN and the subsequent scientific colloquium "Supercomputing in NRW". Four renowned top scientist from the fields brain research, materials science, fluid dynamics and civil security research will present their simulations. (participation by invitation only).
