Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST) is a general incorporated foundation which has been carrying out usage promotion services of the Japanese flagship computers (first the K computer, then the successor supercomputer Fugaku since 2020), commissioned by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), since 2014. Our scope includes project selection, user support, and help spreading research results of projects. In addition, since 2017, RIST has also taken a role as the operation office of the innovative High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI). Within a framework of HPCI, we are in charge of securing computational resources and promoting usage.
