Center for Simulation and Modeling
Ken Jordan, Professor of Chemistry, discussed the Center for Simulation and Modeling, which he co-directs. The Center provides resources to all University researchers who conduct computationally intensive research. Professor Jordan and the Center’s other Co-Director, Karl Johnson, are meeting with University faculty members in order to publicize the Center. To date, they have met with more than 30 faculty and research groups. Currently, the Center is helping to facilitate six research projects.
Since its inception, the Center has:
In the future, the Center will sponsor:
They have also submitted a proposal to NSF’s IGERT program, established a partnership program with NVIDIA, and attended the Supercomputing Conference 2009.

High Performance Computing Upgrade
The University recently applied for an NSF grant, which
would enable it to upgrade its high-performance computing environment. The University proposed installing dense-wave
multiplexing technology to upgrade the speed and capacity of the University’s
data communications backbone. The
project focuses upon links between the
