Research Support

CCIT helping Clemson's students, faculty and staff achieve their research goals. Learn how CCIT can help you.
CCIT is integrally engaged in Clemson’s research community by virtue of the vital resources we provide to enable innovation. Our teams and infrastructure helps the Clemson community achieve its research goals. Cyberinfrastructure Technology Integration (CITI) is comprised of two teams that directly support and interact with the Clemson research and education community – the Advanced Computing & Data Science (ACDS) group and the Clemson Center for Geospatial Technologies (GIS group), and the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI) group supports the infrastructure and systems engineering and architecture behind the Palmetto Cluster research computing environment.

Advanced Computing & Data Science Group

CITI is the front-facing team that supports all research that leverages the power of CCIT computing resources. The CITI team comprises a well-established, highly successful group of faculty and technical staff with an international reputation for leading research in areas such as high-performance computing, high-throughput computing, high-performance networking, data access/storage and interpretation, and software environments for cyber-enabled communities.

Clemson Center for Geospatial Technologies (GIS Group)

The Clemson Center for Geospatial Technologies aims to build a community of interdisciplinary geospatial science practitioners through the support of research, teaching, and outreach activities using technologies that enable the collection, analysis, and application of geospatial data. The Center is dedicated to assisting faculty and students in the integration of geospatial technologies within their scholarly activities across all disciplines at Clemson University and building connections between academic, industrial, governmental and non-governmental institutions throughout the world.

Advanced Computing Infrastructure Group

In 2007, the Advanced Computing Infrastructure (ACI) team was formed by Jim Bottum and Jim Pepin to install and maintain hardware, storage, and systems software, including job scheduling, for the newly acquired HPC cluster called “Palmetto”. The team has since expanded to provide hardware support for all research computing equipment located in the ITC datacenter, including the national “CloudLab” resource. The ACI team works closely with the CITI team to provide the best possible solutions for Clemson’s computational research faculty and students.
