Bridging to National Cyberinfrastructure


Cornell University is a partner in the National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) program which includes over 20 supercomputer and high-end visualization and data analysis resources. CAC directors have multiple leadership roles in XSEDE including Community Infrastructure Lead, Workforce Development Training Lead, and Software Builds and Community Repository Maintenance.

CAC also provides workshops on XSEDE supercomputers such as the Stampede2 and Frontera supercomputers. These workshops are held at Rhodes Hall making them readily available to the Cornell research community. XSEDE offers other training classes at various locations.

If a researcher needs immediate access to XSEDE training, we offer online training on-demand. Researchers across the nation use our Cornell Virtual Workshop online learning platform to learn about topics such as scripting, parallel programming, MPI, OpenMP, and visualization.

Contact the XSEDE Campus Champion

An XSEDE Campus Champion is available at CAC to assist you in requesting an XSEDE allocation and to help you get started on XSEDE resources.


Researchers may apply for an allocation of computing time on DOE HPC platforms through the DOE INCITE Leadership Computing Program. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is an annual competition. Cornell researchers have received INCITE awards for applications such as alternative fuel combustion simulations, many-body quantum simulations, and molecular dynamics.
