Winners of the 2022 Golden Spike Awards (l-r): Anna Neuweiler (University of Potsdam), Martin P. Lautenschläger (German Aerospace Center), Johanna Potyka (University of Stuttgart).

Announced at a conference highlighting scientific research using HLRS's supercomputer, the awards recognized three outstanding projects.

On October 4-5, 2022, scientific users of HLRS’s high-performance computing systems gathered at the center and online to present their recent research at the annual Results and Review Workshop. This meeting offers an opportunity to learn about current applications of high-performance computing at HLRS and to discuss approaches for using the center’s supercomputer most effectively.

Twenty-four talks and a lively poster session covered a wide range of topics in fields such as computational fluid dynamics, climate research, computer science, chemistry and materials science, bioinformatics, structural mechanics, and physics, among others. 

At the conclusion of the meeting, the winners were named of this year’s HLRS Golden Spike Awards, which recognize excellence in research and the efficient usage of high-performance computing systems. Representing their respective projects through presentations at the workshop, this year’s Golden Spike Award winners were Anna Neuweiler (Institute for Physics and Astronomy, University of Potsdam) for “Simulating Binary Neutron Star Mergers,” Martin P. Lautenschläger (Institute for Engineering Thermodynamics, Computational Electrochemistry, German Aerospace Center) for “Lattice Boltzmann Simulation of Flow, Transport, and Reactions in Battery Components,” and Johanna Potyka (Institute of Aerospace Thermodynamics, University of Stuttgart) for “Towards DNS of Droplet-Jet Collisions of Immiscible Liquids with FS3D.”
