National Computational Science Alliance
Participants: Thomas A. DeFanti, EVL faculty, staff, and students
Institutions: National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Argonne National Laboratory
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was named a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s new Partnerships for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (PACI) program. Their award winning proposal, the National Computational Science Alliance, calls for the creation of a partnership of centers of excellence, hereafter called the “Alliance”, to prototype a computational infrastructure for the Nation for the 21st century. EVL is an Alliance partner and will work with other institutions to further develop collaborative tele-immersive virtual reality tool, techniques and methodologies.
