Collaborative Computing Laboratory

CCL website

The Collaborative Computing Laboratory (CCL) undertakes research in the areas of grid computing, distributed computing, and web-based computing. Our current research focus is on application development and programming environments, integration systems, problem solving environments (computational portals), and collaborative environments to support multidisciplinary research.

CCL has a 64-processor Opteron cluster with Grid middleware infrastructure and is in the process of being integrated with other computational resources on campus to create a distributed campus-wide computational infrastructure — the UABGrid. Members of CCL have active collaboration with other CS research groups as well as the Academic Computing Department, Mechanical Engineering Department, and Molecular and Genetic Bioinformatics Facility at UAB.
