• Looking Inside Simulation's Black Box

    At the 2018 Science and Art of Simulation Workshop, philosophers, sociologists, historians, and computer scientists sought to develop a more rigorous framework for evaluating the trustworthiness of computational science.

  • Supercomputing Helps Study Two-Dimensional Materials

    In a paper published recently in Nature, researchers report how HLRS's Hazel Hen supercomputer helped to understand experiments involving lithium atoms moving between layers of graphene. The work could support development of new materials for batteries and other electronics.

  • Supercomputing in Industry Is Focus of Second HPC User Roundtable

    Simulation provides competitive advantages for companies of all sizes, though industrial HPC users face unique challenges.

  • Hawk to Replace Hazel Hen

    HLRS and Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced a joint collaboration to build a new supercomputing system called Hawk, which will be 3.5 times faster than HLRS's current flagship supercomputer, Hazel Hen.

Research
& Science

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

Details

Enterprises
& SME

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

Society
& HLRS

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.

Details

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).
