The members of the bwHPC consortium have established teams for the operation and the support of the HPC clusters, data facilities as well as access, monitoring and information services. Some of those teams have specific tasks as established in the current support project of bwHPC, aka bwHPC-S5. Others, such as the bwHPC competence centers, constitute the infrastructure for user support beyond particular project or short term fundings.
The bwHPC-S5 project offers user support via HPC Competence Centers consisting of expert teams from across the universities of Baden-Württemberg. In these centers, the available state-wide expertise for user support in selected research areas is bundled and concentrated. Consequently, the advisory foundation for the diverse scientific peer groups is strengthened and enlarged. The Competence Centers for different research areas are complemented by a cross-sectoral team for user support across all research areas.
Inquiries or support concerning particular HPC topics please address to the corresponding bwHPC competence center:
