LLNL is home to several computing-centric Centers and Institutes that provide a mechanism and organizational structure for collective, multidisciplinary research activities. These entities offer an access point for collaboration with the academic community and an avenue for strategic partners to access LLNL capabilities, facilities, and vast intellectual capital. Explore some of our computing-focused Centers and Institutes below.
Center for Applied Scientific Computing
CASC serves as LLNL’s window to the broader computer science, computational physics, applied math, and data science research communities. Collaborating with academic, industrial, and government partners, we conduct world-class scientific R&D on problems critical to national security.
With world-class leadership and experience, Livermore Computing (LC) is home to the computational infrastructure that supports the advancement of HPC capabilities. We harness advanced computing power through scalable, cost-effective, specialized environments—from hardware and software to buildings, facilities, and user support.
Data Science Institute
Data science has become an essential discipline paving the path of LLNL's key program areas, and the Lab is home to some of the largest, most unique, and most interesting data and supercomputers in the world. The Data Science Institute (DSI) acts as the central hub for all data science activity at LLNL.
Academic Engagement Program
The CASC Academic Engagement Program (AEP) facilitates outreach for the Computing directorate with the academic research community. The program helps staff collaborate with faculty and other researchers through joint research, subcontracts, faculty visits, and sabbatical arrangements.
High Performance Computing Innovation Center
The HPC Innovation Center (HPCIC) is an LLNL initiative that offers industrial partners a powerful trifecta of problem solvers: technical expertise, computing resources, and support. Our computational facilities and data center operations are world-class and have been operating for several decades.
