High Performance Computing
- FLR is a member of SSERCA, which brings together geographically distributed organizations and high end resources in such a way that their collective impact is far greater than the sum of their individual parts. The Alliance’s mission is to further the development of a statewide computational science infrastructure of advanced scientific computing, communications and education resources by promoting cooperation between Florida’s universities.
- Supercomputer Conference
- Established in 1988, the annual SC conference continues to grow steadily in size and impact each year. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall.
- SC has built a diverse community of participants including researchers, scientists, application developers, computing center staff and management, computing industry staff, agency program managers, journalists, and congressional staffers. This diversity is one of the conference's main strengths, making it a yearly "must attend" forum for stakeholders throughout the technical computing community.
- Florida Research Consortium
- The Florida Research Consortium (FRC) is a strategic partnership of education, business and government formed specifically to advocate for knowledge-based economic development in Florida. Founded in 2001, FRC works to increase awareness of the cutting-edge research that is under way throughout the state of Florida and to enhance the diversity and strength of Florida’s innovation economy through the commercialization of that research.
- FRC is governed by a volunteer board of representatives from public and private research universities, private research institutes, Fortune 500 companies, small and mid-sized businesses, technology startups, business incubators, and state government who, working collaboratively, direct a small staff charged with implementing the consortium’s vision and values
- US Ignite
- US Ignite fosters the creation of next-generation Internet applications that provide transformative public benefit. By engaging diverse public and private leaders, we “ignite” the development and deployment of new apps with profound impact on how Americans work, live, learn and play. Our current applications are specifically, focused in six areas of national priority; Education & Workforce, Energy, Health, Public Safety, Transportation, and Advanced Manufacturing
- As transformative, next-generation applications begin to be experienced by Americans across the country, US Ignite has the ripple effect of driving new business opportunities and accelerating U.S. leadership in the adoption of ultra-fast broadband and software-defined networks in communities nationwide.
Nations Science Foundation Programs
- The "Campus Cyberinfrastructure - Network Infrastructure and Engineering (CC-NIE)" program invests in improvements and re-engineering at the campus level to support a range of data transfers supporting computational science and computer networks and systems research. The program also supports Network Integration activities tied to achieving higher levels of performance, reliability and predictability for science applications and distributed research projects.
- The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) is open and broadly inclusive, providing collaborative and exploratory environments for academia, industry and the public to catalyze groundbreaking discoveries and innovation in these emerging global networks.
