for Computational Science (CCS) was
founded in 1990 to coordinate and promote computationally
based research, to foster computational science
education and to provide for the expansion of
computational resources and support.
Computational Science at Boston University.
provides a forum for the multidisciplinary exchange
of ideas among researchers, educators and students.
Regularly scheduled seminars as well as workshops
and symposia are offered to highlight advances
in computational science. CCS has acted to develop
and facilitate the formulation of projects in
computationally based research and education,
working with scientists from 20 different departments
works in close collaboration with Information
Services & Technology, in particular with
Computing and Visualization (SCV)
group, in the development of resources to support
computational science. The high
performance computing and visualization systems
at Boston University currently include the IBM
Blue Gene, an IBM pSeries 655, an IBM BladeCenter
Linux Cluster, an Intel Pentium III Linux Cluster,
our Deep Vision Display Wall, the Access Grid
Conference Facility, the Laboratory for Virtual
Environments and the Computer Graphics Laboratory.
SCV provides documentation, training and support
for using these facilities
and accepts applications
for accounts on-line.
offers a Certificate
in Computational Science
to graduate students in engineering and
science pursuing a Ph.D.
