Get access to ABACUS 2.0

Test Projects can start at any time, but are limited to 8 months. Regular Projects are assigned over four-month windows. Windows start on March 1, July 1 and November 1. You can submit requests continuously, but they will be gathered, evaluated and resources allocated at several cut-off dates...

08/02/18 – Migratory birds use a magnetic compass in their eye for navigation. Its basic sensory mechanisms have long remained elusive, but now researchers reveal exactly where in the eye, the birds’ control center for navigation is situated. The researchers went on to determine Cry4s...
04/01/18 – Check out here how the supercomputer ABACUS 2.0 was used to run a simulation program called DaMaSCUS that can simulate the collision of dark matter particles with the Earth.
12/12/17 – In early October, Lars Kjær, Information Specialist at the Copenhagen University Library (KUB), called for a seminar with special focus on digital photogrammetry and supercomputing. Photogrammetry is the learning of measuring in photographs. From such measurements one can obtain...

The SDU eScience Center

A single point of reference for eScience and research e-infrastructure at SDU.

Mission: To digitally enhance research across all fields through the efficient utilization of data, software and e-Infrastructure.

The Center is structured as a cross-faculty research-based organization that has the ownership of the common research infrastructure for eScience, provides user support across the faculties and develops future e-infrastructures and services.

The Center Director is Professor Claudio Pica. 

Abacus 2.0

The ABACUS 2.0 supercomputer - DeiC National HPC centre, SDU- hosted at the SDU eScience Center, is a state-of-the-art solution optimized for a wide range of applications in computational science and technology. It is one of the three Danish National Supercomputing Services.

Open to all researchers and industry in Denmark, coming both from the traditional HPC disciplines as well as the emerging ones, ABACUS 2.0 is able to perform 766 trillion operations per second opening new and unique research opportunities for its users.

Current applications cover advanced modeling and simulations in chemistry, material science, biophysics, high-energy physics, engineering, computational medicine, archeology as well as scientific data visualization.
