How to acknowledge Mogon

When preparing a journal publication please reference Mogon. We prepared a basic acknowledgement.

Training & Outreach


We offer various courses, particularly for newcomers via the university's Ilias e-learning system, where you can register for our courses. If you do not have a university account, please write to to register or ask for more information.

All courses, unless otherwise noted, will take place within the rooms of the ZDV. You will find us here.


There is a regular meeting of HPC users and administrators for news, discussions and support.

We offer every Thursday morning, at 10:15 am, to meet us in the 01 332 HPC-Workshop room of the annex building of the ZDV (Map - on the left side of the map).

Please drop us a quick note beforehand and tell us what exactly you want to talk about (a specific problem or a general introduction), so we can make sure that the appropriate person will be there.

How to get support

If you have any questions or need help regarding high performance computing at the ZDV, send an eMail to (which will create a new ticket in our ticketing system).

Please do not send eMail to our staff directly - using the ticketing system helps us with appropriate scheduling and load balancing while supporting you and every other user.

If you write an eMail, please try to include as much information as possible, including, but not limited to:

  • The job command line or the job script (sbatch …)
  • JobIDs
  • The environment you started the job in (at least the output of module list, maybe even env | sort)
  • If possible, the whole job output, or if it is to big, the relevant output from the batch system (at the beginning and the end) and any error messages you encounter.
