National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation is a major supporter of research at Cornell University.
As Cornell’s advanced computing center, CAC supports Cornell’s NSF-funded researchers and their computing needs.
CAC is also directly funded by NSF to help develop the nation’s cyberinfrastructure resources and services.
NSF Container and Cloud Projects
CAC received a $2 million CSSI award to implement an integrated container framework for the Weather Research and Forecasting Model called
I-WRF (2022-2026). The center was also PI on an $8.2 million

Frontera and has developed cloud training for
In addition, we are developing software for
IRIS-HEP, serve as the cyberinfrastructure lead for
NANOGrav (Cornell is co-PI), and are leading an
EAGER grant to optimize the operations of future NSF cyberinfrastructure projects.
Digital Data Collections
ArXiv, eBird, Gramene, Kinetic Models for Design, and the ALPHA Pulsar project are examples of
digital data collections
