Call for Large-Scale Compute-Time Proposals for the new Noctua 2 System at PC2

With the next project phase starting on April 1st, 2022 the new Noctua 2 system ( at PC2 will be available for production usage. PC2 ( is one of the nine new national NHR Centers in Germany. 

This new system includes in total more than 140,000 CPU-Cores on AMD Milan CPUs (Zen3) with up to 1 TiB of memory, 128 NVIDIA A100-GPUs, and 80 FPGAs.

In this call for proposals, more than 1000 million CPU-core-hours and more than 1 million GPU-hours can be awarded in total!

Researchers from universities in Germany can apply for

  • large projects (more than 12 million CPU-core hours, apply by February, 4th, 2022 12:00 MET) or
  • normal projects (up to 12 million CPU-core hours, apply anytime) and

on this new system. All details for the Call for Proposals can be found at

In addition to the usual HPC support for aspects like software installation, code optimization, workflow setup among others, PC2 is also offering advanced support by experts in the fields of computational chemistry, solid-state and high-energy physics, atomistic simulations, GPU and FPGA acceleration.

We encourage you to share this Call for Proposals and the new possibilities at PC2 with your colleagues.
