The mission of ISAAC is to investigate the emerging architectures and programming models as applicable to real-world problems in Astrophysics.

What is ISAAC

The ISAAC Cyberinfrastructure is software/hardware, training & outreach, ecosystem to enable scientific discovery through HPC in Astrophysics.

The Infrastructure

The ISAAC approach is to solve big impact problems and use the solutions as the building blocks for the Cyberinfrastructure.

The ISAAC Cyberinfrastructure comprises of,

  1. Software:                  
  2. Hardware                  
  3. Technology Review                       
  4. Education/Outreach
  5. Data Products
  6. Publications

The following schematic illustrates the development of the ISAAC Cyberinfrastructure. The project is on going and the components listed in gray may change in time.
