Contact: Adrian Sandu

The goal of the Laboratory for Advanced Scientific Computing and Applications (LASCA) is to provide expertise and leadership in high-end scientific computing research and education at Virginia Tech. Located in Torgersen Hall, the laboratory is a visible and strategic center of activity in applied high-computation and assist scientists and engineers in applying high-end computing resources to their problems. By bringing together experts in scientific cp\omputing and its applications, LASCA helps build the kind of multidisciplinary teams needed to address today's most challenging computational science problems.
