The Center is a virtual organization comprised of researchers from five national laboratories (ANL, LLNL, ORNL, PNNL, SNL), five universities (Binghamton, Indiana, Maryland, Oregon, Virginia State), and one small business (Tech-X) collaborating through face-to-face and electronic interactions. It is led by David E. Bernholdt of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

This page refers only to the TASCS project.  We are proud to be part of a much larger and longer-lived community devoted to the development and use of the Common Component Architecture, and we are indebted to many people not listed here for their contributions to the CCA.
