10 Years of Enabling Science

Celebrating 10 Years of the Research Computing Center


The Research Computing Center (RCC) is celebrating 10 years of enabling research at the University of Chicago.

The RCC supports more than 9,000 users, including almost 700 principal investigators, with programs and services driven by the needs of the faculty, students, and researchers.

To celebrate this milestone, the RCC is hosting a variety of activities this year that include a speaker series, lunch and learns, workshops, and hackathons that will culminate with the Research Computing Expo Symposium-Mind Bytes 2023.
