Oral history interviews. Computer-mediated collaborations: Grand Challenge Cosmology Consortium (GC3), 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Ed Bertschinger (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Lars Hernquist (University of California, Santa Cruz), Michael Norman (University of Illinois), Jerimiah Ostriker (Princeton University), and Ralph Roskies (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center).
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 Grand Challenge Cosmology Consortium (GC3) was a collaboration of Princeton, MIT, the University of California at Santa Cruz, the University of Illinois and the National Center for Supercomputer Applications, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and the University of Indiana to develop and use computation techniques for simulating cosmological processes. Funding from NSF through the High Performance Computation and Communications Program, but ARPA has contributed money to both NSF and NASA programs for high-performance computing. Collaboration began in 1993 and was in operation at time of interviewing.
