Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for High Performance Computing is to advance scientific research at VCU in areas that benefit from large-scale computation.

These include, for example, first principles determination of the structure and properties of nanoscale systems and clusters consisting of thousands of atoms, modeling of biological systems using techniques from physical sciences, mathematical modeling of the motility of certain parasites, and macromolecules. The CHiPC will provide the supercomputing clusters, large-scale storage systems, specialized software, and technical expertise in code optimization and parallelization.
