CCL Main Page
Collaborative Computing Laboratory (CCL) undertakes research in the areas of collaborative environments for multidisciplinary applications, programming environments to enable rapid Grid application development and deployment, and high-level approaches to parallel program generation. Members of CCL are leading efforts to develop a campus-wide distributed computational infrastructure – UABgrid, novel algorithms for metascheduling applications on the Grid, designing collaborative environments, and developing new programming paradigms to generate programs for next-generation HPC architectures. Members of CCL have active collaboration with other CIS research groups as well as IT HPC Services, Mechanical Engineering Department, and Molecular and Genetic Bioinformatics Facility at UAB.
