The Center for Computational Research (CCR) maintains a high-performance computing environment, high-end visualization laboratories, and support staff with expertise in computing, visualization, and networking.
The integration of large computing and big data is essential to tackle the urgent research problems in fields ranging from multi-scale modeling and design of materials to natural disasters, smart electric grids, and medical technologies.
Each year we bring some of the nation's most prominent scholars of data-enabled science to Buffalo for a week of workshops, lectures and networking. The initiative increases educational opportunity and employability for students, attracts new graduate students to UB, and boosts research opportunities for aligned faculty members.
Decoding the human genome. Modeling natural phenomenon. Evaluating the impact of major disasters. All involve computational manipulation of large datasets. Analyzing big data has become vital across virtually all areas of science and engineering.
