UCSD’s Norman named to advisory group
Michael L. Norman, director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UCSD, has been named to the advisory committee of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Directorate of the Nation Science Foundation.
“This advisory group will help guide the Mathematics and Physical Sciences Directorate in their efforts to rapidly exploit the computational and data-intensive capabilities provided by the NSF’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure to enable a new kind of science —cyberscience,” said Norman, who was appointed to the committee for a three-year term.
“The goal is to create a coordinated, cost-efficient research cyberinfrastructure, which is the intellectual capital for universities in this day and age. MPS stands to both benefit from, and drive the requirements for this cyberinfrastructure.”
He added that since the Supercomputer Center is already working in this area, he feels his participation “provides an opportunity for me to share the center’s research and experiences with a national audience, while learning how others are approaching similar problems,” said Norman.
