Tohoku University Cyberscience Center


The Cyberscience Center was founded as a national supercomputer center hosted by Tohoku University in 1969. Since then, the Center has been installing high-end computing systems and providing them to researchers and students nationwide in Japan. In addition to the role of a national inter-university joint usage/research center for high performance computing, the Center is responsible for cyber-infrastructure of the University.

In 2020, we installed a new supercomputer, AOBA.

AOBA System Information

The world's first system of the second-generation SX-Aurora TSUBASA


AOBA consists of AOBA-A and AOBA-B.

We focus on the design and development of high-performance supercomputing systems and their applications. Since it is necessary to well understand and exploit the parallelism of the underlying hardware for high performance, we are developing programming models and supportive tools to facilitate the parallel programming and code optimization. In addition, as supercomputer systems are becoming larger and more complicated, its power consumption and dependability become critical design constraints of supercomputers. Therefore, we are designing/architecting the next generation supercomputers with high power efficiency and dependability.
