Super-Partnerships: Computational Science Curricula, High Performance Computing and the Professional Organizations


Since October 1997, NSF has supported two National Supercomputing Partnerships, led by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), University of California, San Diego. The goal of this program is to create and maintain the national metacomputing environment, by supporting leading-edge technology and applications research, and promoting human, technological and administrative infrastructure for ubiquitous computing. This paper provides summaries of the individual presentations from the conference: (1) Building a faculty community to support curriculum development in computational science and engineering (Kris Stewart), (2) Repositories and Online Tools (Roscoe Giles), and (3) Sociology Workbench, an analytical interface to distributed resources for social scientists (Ilya Zaslavsky).
