Education and Training Partners

The Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) aspires to be a world leader in enabling technologies and software for scientific computing. ICL's vision is to provide high performance tools to tackle science’s most challenging problems and to play a major role in the development of standards for scientific computing in general.

The IGMCS is a campus-wide academic program developed by faculty from a wide range of campus colleges and departments with an interest in Computational Science. Here, faculty and students will find information relevant to the program and its development, including meeting notes, schedules, descriptions, etc.

JICS supports XSEDE users and works to bring information about XSEDE resources to the scientific community.

The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) and the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville have made available two million additional hours of supercomputing time to projects in the humanities, arts, and social sciences.

Oak Ridge Associated Universities partners with NICS in funding four student-faculty internships and engaging in other synergistic activities.
