Published 05/15/2006

The May issue of CTWatch quarterly has been issued by guest editors Fran Berman, Director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center and Thom Dunning, the Director of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. The issue is entitled Designing and Supporting Science and Engineering-Driven Infrastructure and offers a behind the scenes look at what is required to develop and deploy successful cyberinfrastructure for compute, data, software and grids.

Cyberinfrastructure Technology Watch (CTWatch) is an online venue designed to engage the science and engineering research community in the news, ideas, and information surrounding the emergence of cyberinfrastructure as the essential foundation for advanced scientific inquiry.

May's feature articles include:

  • Creating and Operating National-Scale Cyberinfrastructure Services
  • Designing and Supporting High-end Computational Facilities
  • Designing and Supporting Data Management and Preservation Infrastructure
  • NWChem - Development of a Modern Quantum Chemistry Program
  • Supporting National User Communities at NERSC and NCAR

The May issue can be found at the CTWatch Quarterly web site.

CTWatch is a joint effort of the NSF funded Cyberinfrastructure Partnership (CIP) between the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and it is being carried out in collaboration with the Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) at the University of Tennessee. It serves both as a forum for opinion and analysis on issues related to cyberinfrastructure generally, and as an ongoing news and information source concerning the latest innovations in cyberinfrastructure technology.
