The mission of the Advanced Computing Cooperative (ACC) is to help eliminate computational roadblocks by working across organizational boundaries to provide advanced computing capabilities to USGS researchers. The ACC is comprised of volunteers across the USGS missions and centers who are focused on advancing the scientific computing capabilities of the USGS.

The ACC has defined the following goals:

  • Provide researchers with access to advanced computing resources, such as High Performance Computing (HPC), High-throughput Computing (HTC), and Cloud based advanced computing capabilities.
  • Understand the Bureau requirements for advanced computing and define how the ACC can meet priority advanced computing needs.
  • Identify, prioritize, and address Bureau level challenges and solutions to scientific computing problems.
  • Provide consulting and training services to facilitate adoption and optimization of advanced computing resources, workflows, and algorithms in USGS.
  • Maintain and grow partnerships with external advanced computing experts (Department of Energy (DOE), The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) supported by the National Science Foundation, Universities, etc.)

The poster will define advanced computing and describe the role of the ACC, how the ACC helps researchers, and how you can get involved.
