ICAMS / Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation


The IT department’s primary task is to provide a well-functioning computer infrastructure to all employees of the Institute, supporting the scientific work in the best possible way. We offer direct support in case of usage problems. Moreover we solve more challenging IT problems in the state-of-the-art software and hardware environment of ICAMS. The IT department also supports software development at ICAMS by contributing software engineering skills.The most ambitious topic is the administration of the ICAMS high performance cluster, quenching the needs of sophisticated material simulations in a well endowed Linux based environment.
