Data-Intensive Computing with Spatial Models

Much of the infrastructure in the Duke Computer Science Department is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation. The parallel computing research through the 1990s was funded by a 1991 Research Infrastructure (RI) award, and the Cluster Lab was established with a 1995 grant from the ARI program. Most recently, we received a 5-year Research Infrastructure award in 1999 to fund common infrastructure for projects relating to our focus on data-intensive computing with spatial models. This includes projects in scientific computing, algorithms, architecture, and systems. Much of the systems and architecture work deals basic facilities for large-scale storage, high-performance memory systems, wide-area data sharing, and pervasive computing, but we also work directly on application efforts related to the spatial theme.
