High Performance Computing Initiative

CSUSB High Performance Computing

Through the CSUSB High Performance Computing Initiative (HPCI), our faculty, students and staff can use the high performance computing resources at the supercomputing centers listed below. All faculty and student projects that can use these resources are welcome and can begin immediately.

How to start

Please contact the HPCI Faculty Fellow, Dr. Youngsu Kim, if you are interested in the program or would like to submit a project. Please utilize the following resources depending on your project and class. 

Anyone with Coyote ID can access our JupyterHub immediately. For the PRP and XSEDE, each requires a different level of information to start. Please click the server names for details.

Additional CSUSB resources

  • Data Analytics Working Group for data analytics information and resources. They hold working hours to help the campus and community with questions related to data analytics.

HPC Work at CSUSB

An example of a recent HPCI project is Benson and Pamela Harer Fellow in Egyptology Dr. Kate Liszka's and Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art's research Egyptologist and educator Bryan Kraemer's interactive 3D model of a large archaeological site in southeastern Egypt, Wadi el Hudi, created from 91,000 still images:
