Hello and welcome! Here at the Center for Advanced Computing and Data Systems (CACDS) we are striving to enhance the High Performance Computing (HPC) expertise and resources available to the University of Houston community. Our expert and friendly staff help UH researchers by offering free consultation and training. Graduate students are especially welcome. Throughout each semester, staff members teach classes at various levels on many different aspects of HPC - all free to UH faculty, staff and students. They meet one-on-one with anyone interested in improving the performance of their codes, looking for new algorithms or seeking help to implement them. CACDS also hosts events, seminars, and workshops related to HPC topics. Contact us and let us help you enhance the performance of your codes.
