The JICS Vision
The University of Tennessee (UT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) established the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) to advance scientific discovery and state-of-the-art engineering and to further knowledge of computational modeling and simulation by:
- Taking full advantage of petascale and beyond computers housed at ORNL
- Educating a new generation of scientists and engineers well-versed
in the application of computational modeling and simulation for solving the most challenging scientific and engineering problems.
The JICS Team
The JICS team includes UT-ORNL Joint Faculty appointees, JICS Research Affiliates, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and administrative staff. JICS Joint Faculty members hold a dual position as faculty members within a University of Tennessee department and as staff scientists within an ORNL research group. JICS also has scientific support staff to aid JICS affiliates and students in their use of leadership-class computing.
JICS is housed in a new 52,000 sq. ft. building, constructed by the state of Tennessee on the ORNL campus
