From HPCwire today
The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin today announced it has launched an international collaboration created to support the use of advanced computational technologies in solving the world’s most challenging science and engineering problems.
The Global Academic Supercomputing Consortium (GASC) will create strategic alliances that build and strengthen global research and development, and promote educational collaborations in advanced computing.
The GASC has an international flavor, which may be the specific differentiation it offers (I’m going to send Jay and email and ask him).
The inaugural members of the consortium are: TACC, High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart, Germany; Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan; Centro Nacional de Supercómputo, Instituto Potosino de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (IPICyT), Mexico; Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC), Poland; Barcelona Supercomputer Center (BSC), Spain; Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center (EPCC), UK; and Centro Nacional de Calculo Científico (CeCalCULA), Venezuela.
