ITTC Project

Community Workshop on Computational Simulation and Visualization Environment of Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES)

Project Award Date: 07-15-2003


The George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program is establishing a Collaboratory or program that will combine experimental, computational, communications, and curated repository system. This is being developed to support collaboration in earthquake engineering research and education. Researchers will create a community-backed plan for the inception of this program. NEES will host a Community Workshop on the Computational Simulation and Visualization Environment (CSVE).

NEES is intended to shift the emphasis of earthquake engineering research from current reliance on physical testing to integrated experimentation, computation, theory, databases, and model-based simulation. To enable this transformation, researchers must continue to develop a computational toolset for modeling, simulation, and visualization. The Community Workshop is designed to span across disciplines, bringing together researchers in geo-engineering, structural engineering, and tsunami engineering, with experts in high performance and network based computing. The primary objective of the proposed workshop is to develop a community-based plan for computational modeling, simulation, and visualization end-user software and hardware for Collaboratory development.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
