Oral history interviews. Computer-mediated collaborations: Center for Research in Parallel Computation, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Jack Dongarra (University of Tennessee), Geoffrey Fox (Syracuse University), and Ken Kennedy (Rice University).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A computer-mediated collaboration, the Center for Research in Parallel Computation (CRPC) is a collaboration of Rice, the California Institute of Technology, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, the University of Texas at Austin, Argonne National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Northeast Parallel Architectures Center at Syracuse University to develop ways of making parallel computing as easy as supercomputing. The Center's director and administrative headquarters are at Rice. Core of funding from NSF's Office of Science and Technology Infrastructure; additional funding from a host of agencies that support the center-relevant work of individual center members. The collaboration began operating in 1989 and is ongoing.
