Computational Research Technical Support is a specialized area of IT Services to build and support a comprehensive program to advance computational research at Georgia Southern University. That includes offering and supporting traditional high-performance computing (HPC) systems, as well as systems for high throughput and data-intensive computing. The CRTS also helps researchers transition their analyses and models from the desktop to more capable and plentiful resources, providing the opportunity to explore their data and answer research questions at a scale typically not possible on desktops or departmental servers. Partnering with units like ICME as well as the NSF XSEDE program and vendors, the CRTS offers training and learning opportunities around HPC tools and technologies.

The mission of Computational Research Technical Support is to:

  1. Enable research and scholarship at Georgia Southern University by providing students and faculty with access to high-performance computing, data, and visualization resources.
  2. Provide a wide range of guidance and services to facilitate faculty led research including software development, data analytics, and parallel computing.
  3. Provide education, outreach, and training at Georgia Southern University.

In addition to providing access to state-of-the-art computational and visualization resources, CRTS staff, provide a wide range of services to facilitate faculty led research. This includes custom software, GUI interface development, (big) data analytics, and scientific programming support.  CRTS  will offers courses in high-performance computing, training and workshops in specific aspects of high-end computing.

CRTS is currently directly involved in supporting the following areas of research:
