The Cherry L. Emerson Center for Scientific Computation was established in 1991 as a result of a generous donation from Dr. Cherry L. Emerson and a matching contribution by Emory University. A new Emerson Hall was introduced in 2001 where the Center's staff and computer servers are currently located.
The objective of the Center is manifold, including:
The Cherry L. Emerson Center for Scientific Computation was established in 1991. Prof. Joel Bowman served as Acting Director and was succeeded by Keiji Morokuma as Director in 1993. Dr. Jamal Musaev was appointed as Manager of the Center in 2000. During this period, the EC has grown and contributed greatly to computationally oriented science at Emory. In 2006, after Keiji's retirement, Dr. Jamal Musaev was appointed Center's Director. Dr. Alex Kaledin is a System Administrator of the Center.
The Emerson Center Leadership Committee
The Emerson Center Leadership Committee (ECLC) was appointed by the Dean of Emory College to guide the operation of the Emerson Center. It comprises one faculty representative each from Biology, Chemistry, Math & CS, and Physics, among whom chairmanship will rotate every 3 years. Dr. Jamal Musaev serves as ex officio on the ECLC.
The Center currently has over one hundred seventy five active users including faculty and students from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math and Computer Science departments. The Center's "Subscribers" have access to its state-of-the-art computational facilities, world-class experts, and Visiting Fellows Program which brings to campus experts in various fields of computational sciences that are of interest to our faculty and students.
The Center is housed on the fifth floor of the Cherry Logan Emerson Hall. Currently, it owns, maintains and operates:
The above equipment are all connected by fast ethernet. In addition, the Center maintains and provides service to more than 30 state-of-the-art application programs, including:
In addition, the latest versions of all system software, compiles (Fortran, C, C++, Java etc.) and libraries (ESSL, PSSP etc.) are available to our users.
