Motivated by the expanding role of scientific computation and mathematical modeling in science and engineering, the centre was formed to bring together interdisciplinary research teams from various Simon Fraser University faculties.

The major purpose of the Centre is to provide Simon Fraser University with a visible focus for computational research both on campus and in the wider Pacific Rim research community. Specifically, the Centre's goals are to -

  • facilitate discussion between scientific computing research groups (through seminars, workshops, conferences)
  • to provide advanced instruction in computational techniques and applications (through graduate and post-doctoral programs)
  • to actively pursue joint research ventures with industry, government and laboratories
