The High Performance Computing and Analytics Lab

Development of the HPC/A strategy

The High-Performance Computing and Analytics Lab (HPC/A Lab for short) coordinates and bundles activities relating to high-performance computing (HPC) at the University of Bonn. The Lab’s mission includes planning for and coordination of the central HPC infrastructure of the University of Bonn in collaboration with the HPC team at the University Computer Centre.

Bridging role

The HPC/A Lab serves as central contact point for research projects involving HPC, promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and coordinates interaction with the team responsible for operating the central computing infrastructure.


The HPC/A Lab provides University researchers advice on approaching specific application and method-related problems, and refers contacts for potential collaboration.

Early-career researchers

Training seminars, workshops and continuing education courses are offered to promote HPC knowledge and skills at the University, designed in partnership with the HPC operations team and other experts.


The HPC/A Lab centrally documents HPC demand at the University of Bonn and facilitates HPC procurement among other things as part of the University’s overarching strategic planning.


Collaboration in statewide expertise networks like HPC.NRW and in third-party funded projects furthers interdisciplinary dialog at the University of Bonn as an HPC location.


The HPC/A-Lab pursues innovative research projects and participates in research collaborations.
