Virtual Institute — High Productivity Supercomputing

University of Tennessee

Innovative Computing Laboratory

Founded in 1989, the Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) is a world leading, academic research lab with a focus on enabling technology. Located at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, ICL's goal is to provide the high performance computing community with applications and tools for solving science's most challenging problems.
Originating with a single focus on numerical linearly algebra, ICL now conducts research in three additional areas: distributed computing, performance analysis and benchmarking, and asset management. Recognizing the future challenges of HPC in these areas and taking initiatives to address them have not only allowed ICL to grow but have also allowed the laboratory to demonstrate the range and diversity of its research. As such, ICL is currently engaged in more than 15 significant research projects as part of the U.S. HPC research agenda. [More]
