1 Registration bwForCluster

A bwForCluster is a cluster for a specific research area. You can apply for a bwForCluster and the "cluster assignment team" will assign you to the appropriate cluster for your research area, taking into account your specific hardware/software needs. bwForClusters are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg on the basis of grant applications (cf. proposals application guidelines according to Art. 91b GG).

All members of the universities in Baden-Württemberg can apply for an account.

The use of the bwForClusters is free of charge.

1.1 Three Steps for Registration

The registration process for a bwForCluster is divided into three steps, whereby step A+B can be performed in parallel. When both are completed, you can perform step C. To which cluster you get access depends on your research area and will be decided in step B.

After registering, please refer further to Information for already registered users at the bottom of the page and to the cluster-specific pages below bwHPC Systems in the menu on the left.
