As described by Arden L. Bement, director of the National Science Foundation, “the engine for change for the next revolution is cyberinfrastructure.” Like other infrastructure, such as the electric power grid or national highways, cyberinfrastructure combines complex elements to create a dynamic system. These include hardware such as high-performance computers, sophisticated software, human expertise, and a diverse array of communities working in collaboration across a wide communications grid.


SDSC is an undisputed pioneer in the cyberinfrastructure revolution. The Center houses a unique combination of equipment, resources and expertise that, when combined, make it a local, state, and national treasure for major projects in science and engineering requiring complex information and coordinated technologies to make new discoveries.


Research: SDSC serves as a critical IT partner to large scale research projects in life sciences, geosciences, engineering and other disciplines. SDSC researchers collaborate on projects ranging from cellular signaling to earthquake effects to preserving large and irreplaceable data.


Groups & Labs: SDSC’s labs and groups offer a number of cyberinfrastructure services to scientists and engineers, helping them reach their goals quickly and more efficiently.


Education at the SDSC: the Education group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) offers a wide range of community outreach programs that brings cutting-edge research and science curriculum to students, teachers and parents.


The industrial partners program: the IPP provides member companies with a framework for interacting with SDSC researchers and staff, exchanging information, receiving education & training, and developing collaborations.  Joining IPP is an ideal way for companies to get started collaborating with SDSC researchers and to stay abreast of new developments and opportunities on an ongoing basis.
