Scientific research is rapidly becoming a global endeavour. Today's complex computational problems not only require a wide range of technologies to solve them, but they also require a wide range of expertise. Distributed research teams, spread across campus or around the world are common for many scientific problems.
To meet the needs of collaborative scientific computing, WestGrid has deployed a set of collaboration resource at each of the WestGrid sites. WestGrid also provides support personnel distributed across the WestGrid institutions to support researchers in their use of these resources. In addition, leading collaboration researchers from across Canada are working with WestGrid scientists to explore the area of collaboration technologies in the domain of scientific computing.
