Welcome to the website of the Center for Computationally Assisted Science and Technology (CCAST). On these pages prospective, new, and existing users will find information about CCAST, its resources, services, staff, and policies/procedures. We aim to provide you with a premier user experience and effective research computing resources. Please feel free to browse the pages and learn about our newest hardware and software resources in the Resources section, read the materials (designed for novice and experienced users alike) in the Users section, check the status of our resources in the Utilization section (coming soon), and learn about CCAST sponsored events, new funding opportunities, and accomplishments of our researchers in the News/Events section.
Our site contains additional information which will help you use CCAST computers and national resources such as XSEDE and OSG to accomplish your research and education goals. We may not have everything you need, but we usually know where to find it. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly with questions which have not been addressed on these pages (yet) as well as with valuable feedback which will help us become even more useful to you. You can always contact us at email@example.com, or you will find our individual contact information in the Our Staff link to the left.
We invite you to consider where and how large scale computation can contribute to your research and education portfolio. As a member of the NDSU community, you have resources at your disposal. Never in the history of scientific and technological endeavors were opportunities for transformational insights and growth as abundant as they are today. We are here to help.
Welcome to CCAST and happy computing!
Dr. Dane Skow, Executive Director and the CCAST staff.
