Abstract:

This one year summarizes what has been accomplished at the Northeast Parallel Architectures Center during its first year of full operation. The Northeast Parallel Architectures Center promotes and explores advanced computing technology by providing parallel architectures and research support to university, corporate, and government researchers nationwide. The first year was a period to define the organization, acquire hardware and consolidate support and commitment to NPACs mission. NPAC relied heavily on research faculty from other institutions and from Syracuse University Colleges of Computer and Information Science, Engineering, Engineering CASE to achieve this goal. This year was a period of rapid growth and development. The machines acquired include two Connection Machines two Multimaxes, a 320 and 310 an Alliant FX 80 and a Stellar Graphics Supercomputer. These architectures are discussed in further detail in part two of this report. We also continued to build internal and external relationships, strengthening our local and national reputation. Our facility matured and stabilized.
