The CRPC's External Advisory Committee

With six sites at national institutions and five major research thrusts, the CRPC has always benefited from the input of a diverse group of individuals. The pioneering aspect of parallel software demands a coordinated effort among leaders in the field to determine the paths to be taken for research, to create standards where none have previously existed, and to collect information from all sources that will contribute to overall research goals.

Part of this input has come from the participation of the CRPC's External Advisory Committee (EAC) in center activities. The committee is made up of representatives from the organizations that make up the high- performance computing (HPC) community--hardware and software companies, universities, and government science and technology programs. The EAC members provide a sense of direction to the center regarding research and knowledge transfer activities that are beneficial to the HPC community as a whole. The EAC also provides an external apparatus for the center to measure and evaluate the impact of its activities.

The CRPC has been fortunate to have the collective advice of the EAC members, all of whom are distinguished in their respected fields. The breadth of experience among all of the EAC members is significant. Several are members of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. The current committee demonstrates a balance among the public and private sector organizations in high performance computing: six members from industry, seven members from universities, and three members from government or federally funded centers and labs. The following is a list of current and past (emeritus) EAC members:

  • Bill Wulf, EAC Chair, University of Virginia (see related article, page 5)

  • Fran Berman, University of California, San Diego
