At Cyberscience Center, we are committed to the Research and Development (R&D) of fundamental technologies,
using Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to support data-driven research and education and to develop practical and interdisciplinary human resources.

The Center for Large-Scale Computing, the predecessor of the Cyberscience Center, was established in 1969 as a national joint facility for university faculty and other researchers. Since then, this Institution has continued to provide large-scale scientific computing and networking services to researchers within and outside Tohoku University. The Center is currently an on-campus joint facility for Interdisciplinary Large-scale Information Infrastructures (a.k.a. JHPCN), contributing to nationwide research and education. Moreover, the Center plays a key role in maintaining and operating the information infrastructure at Tohoku University to promote data-driven Digital Transformation (DX).

Providing high-performance computing and networking infrastructures is critical to support research, administrative, and academic activities. Therefore, the Center promotes research on networking services and operations, and the results are used within and outside Tohoku University. Specifically, the Center conducts R&D on maintaining, operating, and utilizing the world’s most advanced large-scale scientific computing systems and state-of-the-art networking infrastructure. In addition, as part of the Graduate School of Information Sciences, the Graduate School of Engineering, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, we have expanded our scope and made academic contributions in fields such as Information and Communication and Computer Science and their applications. We are working to enhance cooperation with high-performance computing research communities and develop collaborative frameworks related to advanced information infrastructures with domestic and international research institutions.

We will make full use of our pragmatic research and educational environment of information and communication technology to research and develop fundamental technologies that support data-driven research and education, and to foster practical and interdisciplinary human resources. We are looking forward to working with you to achieve our goal of supporting Data-driven R&D and fostering practical and interdisciplinary human resources.

Thank you for your continued support.
