QCD codes are widely used in many projects like LHC, QPACE, PRACE for research or benchmarking purposes. BQCD, written by Dr. Hinnerk Stueben (Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum für Informationstechnik Berlin) and improved by Dr. Momme Allalen (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre). It supports both pure MPI and hybrid programming model. In addition to being a well-used QCD application in Germany, it is also used in research centres or Universities in Japan, UK, Switzerland, Russia, Mexico and Yemen.
