High Performance Computing Collaboratory

A series of workshops to be held at the University of South Carolina and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign to consider uses of high-performance computing applications in humanities research and teaching.

The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) at the University of South Carolina will partner with the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) to foster innovation in the research and development of computational resources for humanities research groups. Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HpC) will engage scholars in a year-long collaboration with computing specialists in order to: 1) receive a comprehensive education in four computational concentrations; 2) receive instruction in digital humanities project design and management; 3) obtain hands-on experience with a variety of technical platforms; 4) work with technical staff to outline pilot explorations in at least one area of computational concentration; and 5) join a year-long virtual community where scholars will support their peers in authoring digital humanities projects. Participants will come from a wide range of institutions, with a particular focus on recruiting students and faculty from Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Tribal Colleges.
