A global effort to bring together public computing centers
for the advancement of science and research

About IASC

The International Association of Supercomputing Centers (IASC) is a new association for public supercomputing centres offering public, private, and academic access to advanced computing resources that support regional advancement of knowledge and economic development.

Founded by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Science and Technology Council (STFC) Hartree Centre, National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), the IASC has three strategic goals:

  • To examine and communicate best practices for centre management,
  • To study and suggest solutions for common challenges, and
  • To foster communication and collaboration among centres, collaborators, and users.

The IASC was officially launched at ISC22. Check out the HPCWire article.

Spring 2023 Workshops

We are planning a series of workshops in October with the goal to assemble an action list of ways IASC can best serve the community of computing and data centers.

More information will be posted here soon. If you would like to receive updates, please join our mailing list.

We're Just Getting Started. Join Us.

We are representatives from computing centers worldwide- from national flagship facilities to regional computing providers - interested in merging knowledge and know-how for better operations, management and strategic planning. Some topics of interest, among many, include workforce development, NetZero policies, emerging/next-gen technologies and evolving user needs. Join us and share your own insight.
