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.
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
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.
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.
