National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (NPACI) http://www.npaci.edu/
The mission of the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (NPACI) is to advance science by creating a ubiquitous, continuous, and pervasive national computational infrastructure: the Grid. This infrastructure for the 21st century builds on dramatic advances in information technology to enable distributed research by interdisciplinary teams. In the NPACI vision, researchers collect data from experiments and digital libraries, analyze the data with models run on a computing grid, visualize and share those data over the Web, and publish the results for the scientific community in digital libraries.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by Fran Berman of UC San Diego (UCSD) and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), NPACI continues to make major contributions to the national academic community. The primary measure of this success is the advance of scientific discovery and knowledge, which in turn leads to economic and social benefits for the nation. To realize this vision, NPACI joins some 30 other funded partners and 16 domestic and international affiliates in pursuing three goals: capability computing, discovery environments, and computational literacy.
