The Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST) main objective is to establish Indiana University (IU) as the national leader in the field of high-capability graph computing systems and applications. This emerging discipline holds great promise for dramatic impact through innovative research and development in science, industry, commerce, and defense-related domains with significant opportunity for invention of intellectual property.
CREST was established as the fourth research center within the Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) at IU. CREST is affiliated with PTI, the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC), and the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology (OVPIT) at IU.
Our technical strategy focuses on the research and development of advanced technologies for extreme-scale computing and future exascale systems, including the following key elements: Execution Models; Runtime Systems; Graph Processing; Programming Interfaces; Compilers, Libraries, and Languages; Systems Architecture (Architecture, Power/Energy, Fault Tolerance, Networking), and Extreme Scale Applications and Visualization.
