• In memory of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Siegfried Wagner

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Siegfried Wagner, a strong and committed supporter of the HLRS, long-term member of the HLRS Steering Committee, and a founding member of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing. 

  • Industrial HPC Users Face Unique Challenges

    A workshop at HLRS identified issues that need to be addressed if commercial companies are to take full advantage of increased computing power.

  • History Meets the Future as IBM Klub Tours HLRS

    A community organization dedicated to promoting education about the history of technology visited HLRS to learn about new capabilities of high-performance computing in Baden-Württemberg.

  • Designing for Energy Efficiency in High-Performance Computing Centers

    A two-day workshop at HLRS brought together infrastructure experts from German supercomputing centers to discuss strategies for building more sustainable systems.

& Science

Research and science are the main pillars ensuring continuous delivery of high-edge services in every area of high-performance computing provisioning.



HLRS offers a variety of services to industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) way beyond plain HPC resource provisioning.



Simulations transform research and development, as well as decision making in politics. Dealing with simulations in a rational way is therefore a scientific and societal task in itself.


The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart is one of the three member centres of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). HLRS supports national and European researchers from science and industry by providing high-performance computing platforms and technologies, services and support. Services are provided in cooperation with the other two member centres of GCS and with industrial partners such as hww GmbH (T-Systems, Porsche AG) and SICOS BW GmbH.

HLRS conducts basic and applied research in the field of high-performance computing in publicly funded national and European projects as well as industrial research activities in association with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research in the automotive field is carried out in cooperation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
