Computing at MPCDF

The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) is the central computing center for the Max Planck Society. It provides services for all Max Planck Institutes. Furthermore, it is also the dedicated computing center for the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching near Munich.

The MPCDF is open to all institutes of the Max Planck Society and scientific institutions of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Users affiliated with institutes that are already utilizing computing resources at MPCDF can apply for an account via the electronic registration form. The form must be confirmed by a responsible authority of the user's institute.  All users accept the regulations for the usage for the computation facilities at the MPCDF (Regulations / Nutzungsordnung) by submitting their application to the MPCDF. For more information see here.

Institutes of the Max Planck Society and other scientific institutes which are not already using facilities of the MPCDF can ask for a registration by writing a letter to the head of the MPCDF. In this case, persons who have the authority to confirm applications of their institute affiliates need to be accredited by sending their signature to the MPCDF.

In order to allow for requests a valid telephone number of the user is mandatory.

Requests can be sent to by email or via telephone call  (089/3299-2175).
