HLRS Annual Report

2023 Annual Report

Our 2023 annual report introduces HLRS’s next-generation supercomputers, Hunter and Herder, and the opportunities and challenges they present as the center prepares for the exascale. We also talk with Prof. Andrea Beck about how machine learning could enhance research in computational fluid dynamics, interview two certified "HPC experts" about their learning experiences in the Supercomputing Academy, and spotlight recent research by HLRS and our system users.
