MICDE’s depth and breadth of innovation in computational science is reflected in our affiliated faculty’s discoveries, groundbreaking ideas and achievements. Our research centers highlight new tools and methodologies being develop at U-M to accelerate and expand scientific discovery.

Research Centers

Climate visualization

Center for Data-Driven Computational Physics

Modeling of Multi-scale Physical Systems

The mission of the Center for Data-Driven Computational Physics is to usher in the future of large-scale, data-driven modeling of multi-scale physical systems. We focus on data-driven solutions to these problems using high performance computing clusters. However, the interaction of high performance computing for physics with large-scale data is itself a challenging problem, meriting new hardware configurations, software, and computational methods. The Center will respond to this challenge via the ConFlux facility, conceived by MICDE faculty and hosted by ARC-TS.

Network wires and backend

Center for Network and Storage-Enabled Collaborative Computational Science

Improving collaboration on large datasets

The  Center for Network and Storage-Enabled Collaborative Computational Science seeks to address the challenges of extracting scientific results collaboratively from large, distributed or diverse data. Included in the Center is the NSF-funded OSiRIS project, a collaborative, multi-university venture led by MICDE faculty, and hosted by ARC-TS.
