The University of Pittsburgh's Center for Research Computing (CRC) houses an ~8000 CPU core cluster with high-speed internode connectivity for running demanding highly parallel calculations. Several of the nodes have GPU co-processors. CRC also has a team of Ph.D.-level consultants who assist researchers with improving performance of their codes and who teach workshops on various aspects of scientific computing.
Pittsburgh also hosts the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), an NSF-funded National Center. PSC holds multiple workshops on various aspects of scientific computing each year. These have proven quite valuable to our students.
The Pittsburgh Quantum Institute (PQI) was established in 2012 to help unify and promote research in quantum science and engineering in the Pittsburgh area. PQI sponsors several seminars and runs an annual symposium each year.
