HUBzero: A Platform for Dissemination and Collaboration in Computational Science and Engineering
March/April 2010 (vol. 12 no. 2)
pp. 48-53
Michael McLennan, Purdue University
Rick Kennell, Purdue University

The HUBzero cyberinfrastructure lets scientific researchers work together online to develop simulation and modeling tools. Other researchers can then access the resulting tools using an ordinary Web browser and launch simulation runs on the national Grid infrastructure, without having to download or compile any code.
