The main objective of KONWIHR is to support users of high performance computers (especially the HLRB) and to enlarge the deployment of this technology through research- and development projects. KONWIHR promotes the cooperation of end users (particularly coming from industry) and computer scientists by funding training courses, research and development projects, as well as technical meetings, such as workshops and conferences.
Within the scope of KONWIHR there will be 9 million DM of financial resources available in the next 4 years, starting in May 2000. It is assumed that an appropriate part of the costs (according to the sort of project 50% - 75%) will be contributed through own or third party means. Project proposals and questions can be submitted to the KONWIHR-offices in Munich (Southbavaria) and Erlangen (Northbavaria).
Projects proposals can be submitted in two phases per year, ending on 1. March and 1. September.
