Short Takes from the Grounds
Professor Andrew Grimshaw discusses how UVACSE – the UVa Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering — came about and how it benefits schools across the University.
The University will establish a center with two wings – one for the humanities and social sciences, and one for the natural and physical sciences – but with one mission: to provide faculty with opportunities to collaborate with one another, as well as with students and staff who are fluent in the methods of computationally intense inquiry.
Center for Computation-Intense Research & Scholarship (CCIRS)
The U.Va. Alliance for Computational Science & Engineering, or UVACSE, was formed in spring 2008 to transform computational research across the Grounds. As the need for computational techniques in all disciplines increases, UVACSE serves researchers through education, consultation, and the management of shared resources.
UVACSE has had a direct impact on hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and post-docs. UVACSE’s services have dramatically expanded the computational resources available for research and accelerated dozens of computational science projects.
Aided by staff support members (Tiger Teams), researchers take advantage of computation expertise and resources for a range of projects in areas such as engineering, physics, astronomy, biology, biochemistry, environmental sciences, economics, and English. Read more
SHANTI (Sciences, Humanities and Arts Network of Technological Initiatives) uses integrated digital technology with a community-based support and engagement program to facilitate fundamental innovation and improved efficiency in research, teaching, learning, performance, communication and engagement at the University, with a focus on the humanities, sciences and arts.
