Research Areas:

CSE-Online (Computational Science and Engineering) is an innovative cyber-environment for research and education. It helps to build the nation's cyberinfrastructure, which is a necessary tool to drive discovery in all fields of science and engineering. The software framework, developed at the University of Utah, allows users to select among many available tools to construct desktop environments that fit their individual needs. The diverse types of application tools, data, and resources distributed over the Internet are delivered on demand to the user's virtual desktop environment in a simple, secure, and transparent manner.  The software facilitates the flow of data or knowledge from one domain to another and thus enables interdisciplinary research on multiscale scientific challenges.
