The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. XSEDE accelerates open scientific discovery by enhancing the productivity of researchers, engineers, and scholars and making advanced digital resources easier to use.  Download the flyer.

Scientists and engineers around the world use these resources and services – things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new tools – to make our lives healthier, safer, and better. XSEDE staff will be on hand to assist people with using these resources and services.
