Parallel Computing Groups, Clubs and Consortia
- Army HPC Research Centre (AHPCRC). A university led research and educational consortium.
Consortium members include the University of Minnesota as prime
contractor and Howard, Jackson State, and Purdue Universities. HPC
- The Coalition of Academic Supercomputing Centers (CASC) - committed to using high performance computing and communications technology to increase national competitiveness, improve workforce training, advance economic development, enhance education, and build the National Information Infrastructure (NII).
- The Center for Research in Parallel Computation (CRPC) at Rice University [NSF STC NCSA]. A consortium that includes Argonne National Laboratory, the California Institute of Technology, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Rice University, Syracuse University, and the University of Tennessee. The CRPC is committed to a program of research that will make massively parallel systems truly usable to scientists, engineers, and other users. CRPC research focuses on developing algorithms that are portable across several parallel machines and providing compiler, editing, and debugging tools to make parallel machines easier to program. Through education and outreach, the CRPC is training a new generation of scientists and engineers familiar with the latest parallel computing tools and with computational science overall. The CRPC brochure, a querterly newsletter Parallel Computing Research and technical reports are available.
- International Connection Machine User's Group (CMUG) at NCSA or UMN.
- Concurrent SuperComputing Consortium (CSCC) at Caltech and LANL. This is an alliance of thirteen institutions - universities, research laboratories, government agencies, and industry - that pool their resources to gain access to unique computational facilities and to exchange technical information, share expertise, and collaborate on high-performance computing, communications, and data storage. The mission of the CSCC is to stimulate progress in high-performance computing. The initial computer chosen for consortium researchers is the Intel Touchstone Delta which was delivered to Caltech in May 1991.
- Front Range Consortium (FRC)
- IBM SP (POWERparallel) User Group
- Intel Supercomputing User Group at SDSC or NASA.
- US National Consortium for High Performance Computing (NCHPC). Provides Information about the Federal High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC) program, including the Blue Book: High Performance Computing and Communications: Towards a National Information Infrastructure.
- US National Coordination Office for HPCC
- UK Parallel Processing in Engineering Community Club (PPECC)
- US Parallel Tools Consortium (PTC) at LLNL. The Parallel Tools Consortium, established in November 1993, brings together representatives from the federal, industrial, and academic sectors to address these issues. Our mission is to take a leadership role in defining, developing, and promoting parallel tools that meet the specific requirements of users who develop scalable applications on a variety of platforms.
- Supercomputer Computations Research Institute - an interdisciplinary program established to support research in computational science, train researchers from various academic disciplines and provide them access to supercomputers.
