The Center for Data and Computing (CDCS) is a interdisciplinary, joined project from DESY, the Technical University Hamburg and the University of Hamburg funded by the Hamburg-X projects of the Landesforschungsförderung Hamburg (BWFGB).
The CDCS supports interdisciplinary research in the four Cross-Disciplinary Labs (CDLs)
- Computational Astro- and Particle Physics
- Computational Photon Science
- Computational Systems Biology
- Computational Controls of Accelerators
and fosters the application of machine learning / deep learning methods with the help of the Computational Core Unit.
The research is performed in close cooperation with associated institutes across DESY, TUHH, UHH.
The CDCS enables access to compute clusters of all three institutions (DESY Maxwell, TUHH Bombus, UHH Hummel). The DESY Maxwell Cluster is equipped with modern CPUs and GPUs.
