Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS)
A transformational $10 million anonymous donation plus matching funds of equal value from the Simons Foundation has enabled Stony Brook University to establish a world-class Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS). In this endeavor, the Institute will cooperate closely with the new Computational Science Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory, which specializes in large-scale data analysis. (For more information, visit BNL press release.) The new IACS will firmly establish the SBU-BNL partnership as a center of excellence in high-performance computing.
IACS seeks to make sustained advances in the fundamental techniques of computation and in high-impact applications including engineering and the physical, life, and social sciences. Our integrated, multidisciplinary team of faculty, students, and staff overcome the limitations at the very core of how we compute, collectively take on challenges of otherwise overwhelming complexity and scale, and individually and jointly define new frontiers and opportunities for discovery through computation. In coordination with the Computational Science Center (CSC) at BNL, our dynamic and diverse institute serves as an ideal training and proving ground for new generations of students and researchers, and provides computational leadership and resources across the SBU campus and NYS.
