Abstract:   In this session, selected users of the High Performance Computer in Bavaria (HLRB II) will report on their results, with a special focus on both the scientific questions and the specific aspects of high performance computing encountered.

HLRB II was in operation between 2006 and 2011. Its architecture was an SGI Altix 4700 system, based on Intel Itanium2 processors (Montecito). The machine had 9720 processor cores, 39 TByte of shared ccNUMA memory, 600 TByte attached disks and a peak performance of 62.3 TFLOP/s. It was ranked no. 10 in the Top500-list at the time of installation.

The talks will provide an overview of the applications that require high performance computing to solve challenging problems. For each project, the scientific background is described, along with the results achieved and the methodology used.
