What is the MACI Project?
MACI is a collaborative project of the Universities
of Alberta, Calgary, Lethbridge and Manitoba to provide
high performance capabilities in computing. Its goal
is to establish and maintain a regional advanced communication
and computation infrastructure for the private sector,
university and government researchers.
MACI currently provides member researchers with access
to advanced computing, high-speed networking and multimedia
resources that are at the emerging edge of contemporary
technology. Membership criteria varies among MACI member
institutions. Currently, at the University of Alberta,
researcher members pay an annual fee for access to resources.
At the University of Calgary, the faculties pay an overarching
annual fee and all individual researchers have access.
At the Universities of Lethbridge and Manitoba, there
is no member fee at present.
Ongoing efforts to strengthen and broaden the resource
base are aimed at achieving an advanced computing infrastructure
that supports the highest quality research in science,
engineering and the arts.
