Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC)
The Center for Computational Sciences (CCS), University of Tsukuba established the “Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC)” in order to design, operate and manage a next-generation supercomputer system jointly with the Information Technology Center (ITC), The University of Tokyo.
JCAHPC was organized to handle the planning, installation and operation of Japan’s highest class of supercomputer systems. The first supercomputer under JCAHPC was installed at the ITC at the Kashiwa Campus of the University of Tokyo, named Oakforest-PACS which is the fastest supercomputer in Japan as on November 2016. It is believed that operating the Center through cooperation and collaboration will promote advanced computational sciences, and contribute to the promotion of academia, science, and technology in Japan.
