U Partners in Multi-University Advanced Computation Project

Press Release

June 19, 2014

Salt Lake City – The University of Utah is collaborating with five leading U.S. universities on an advanced cyberinfrastructure and computational research project supported by a $5.3 million National Science Foundation grant.

The Advanced CyberInfrastructure – Research and Education Facilitator, or ACI-REF, initiative is the first of its kind in bringing campus research computing activities together in a new level of collaboration that is expected to enable new scientific discovery in a more efficient and cost-effective fashion.

The U hosted the ACI-REF user facilitation team’s first face-to-face meeting earlier this month, where members laid the groundwork for the two-year pilot program, which is an effort to strengthen each school’s computing capabilities through sharing of computational resources and distributing unique areas of expertise across the institutions.

“This award and the partnership with the other institutions is a central component of our effort to realign the U’s Center for High Performance Computing research support mission,” said Steve Corbató, deputy chief information officer and interim CHPC director. “Through this project, our researchers will be able to move beyond our campus to take advantage of national cyberinfrastructure.”

Corbató will oversee the U’s role in the project with support from CHPC staffers Dr. Anita Orendt, Brian Haymore and Julia Harrison. CHPC provides university researchers with large-scale computer systems, networking and expertise to optimize the use of these high-end technologies. The support that CHPC provides has resulted in nearly 1,000 technical publications.

The other universities involved in the project include project lead Clemson University, Harvard University, the University of Hawaii, the University of Southern California and the University of Wisconsin.
