Stony Brook University held a grand opening for the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS), a $20-million supported 6,000 square-foot facility with the mission to make sustained advances in the science of computation and its applications to complex problems in many fields. The IACS fosters a collaborative environment, with a vision that by 2017 it will be an internationally recognized center with research and education programs and a demonstrated economic benefit to New York State. Stony Brook University leadership, IACS faculty, students and public officials attended the event.
