Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HpC): Coordinating High Performance Computing Institutes and the Digital

A total of nine institutes and one joint conference for humanities scholars, to be hosted by three different high-performance computer centers: the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.

The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will lead a collaboration partnering the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center (PSC), and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that will engage scholars in sustained collaboration with high performance computing specialists in order to identify, create, and adapt computational tools and methods. The Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory will serve as a portal for humanities scholars to receive technical support, access to high performance computing, and products and services associated with the digital technologies. Participants will consult with each computing staff about digital technology, discuss these technologies via a virtual community, and develop long-term technological goals for their projects via nine mini-residencies and a two-day conference.
