The NSF Center for Space, High-performance, and Resilient Computing (SHREC) is a national consortium under the Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (IUCRC) program at NSF. Its primary theme is mission-critical computing, in terms of space computing for Earth, space, and defense science, high-performance computing and data analytics for grand-challenge apps, and resilient computing for harsh or critical environments.
The Center consist of four universities (University of Pittsburgh as lead, with Brigham Young University, University of Florida, and Virginia Tech) and over 30 industry and government partners. SHREC researchers are experts in parallel, reconfigurable, distributed, and dependable computing. This new Center replaced the CHREC Center, which was sunsetted after 11 years of successful operation.
