A new advanced computing alliance indicates cooperation and collaboration are alive and well in the global research community.

It was an international celebration in Barcelona, Spain, as representatives from three continents met at PRACEdays17 to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU), formalizing a new era in advanced research computing.

On hand to recognize the partnership were John Towns, principal investigator of the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), Serge Bogaerts, managing director of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), and Masahiro Seki, president of the Japanese Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST).


“We are excited about this development and fully expect this effort will support the growing number of international collaborations emerging across all fields of scholarship,” says Towns.

As steward of the US supercomputing infrastructure, XSEDE will share their socio-technical platform that integrates and coordinates the advanced digital services that support contemporary science across the country.

Science Node is an international weekly online publication that covers distributed computing and the research it enables.

“We report on all aspects of distributed computing technology, such as grids and clouds. We also regularly feature articles on distributed computing-enabled research in a large variety of disciplines, including physics, biology, sociology, earth sciences, archaeology, medicine, disaster management, crime, and art. (Note that we do not cover stories that are purely about commercial technology.)

In its current incarnation, Science Node is also an online destination where you can host a profile and blog, and find and disseminate announcements and information about events, deadlines, and jobs. In the near future it will also be a place where you can network with colleagues.

You can read Science Node via our homepage, RSS, or email.
