Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HpC): Coordinating High Performance Computing Institutes and the Digital


Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, San Diego Supercomputer Center, and the National Center for Super Computing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.



The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign led a collaboration partnering the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center (PSC), and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) to engage scholars in sustained collaboration with high performance computing specialists in order to identify, create, and adapt computational tools and methods. The Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory serves as a portal for humanities scholars to receive technical support, access to high performance computing, and products and services associated with the digital technologies. Participants consulted with each computing staff about digital technology, discussed these technologies via a virtual community, and developed long-term technological goals for their projects via mini-residencies and a two-day conference.
