The National Science Foundation awarded the Louisiana Optical Network 
Initiative, or LONI, a prestigious grant for $2.2 million that allows 
Louisiana to join the TeraGrid, a backbone of national 
cyberinfrastructure. TeraGrid is a nationwide, NSF-funded research 
infrastructure that incorporates high-performance computing resources at 
nine sites across the country. The award will fund initiatives for 
Louisiana researchers to develop broader use of LONI resources as well 
as underwrite the operations costs associated with joining TeraGrid. As 
a member of TeraGrid, LONI will contribute one half of its centerpiece 
supercomputer, Queen Bee’s, computational cycles to the TeraGrid 
community. LONI researchers will in turn be able to utilize the 
TeraGrid’s national resources. This will give Louisiana researchers 
better opportunities to collaborate on nationwide scientific research 
projects and give LONI experience supporting a national user community.

High Performance Computing (HPC) which provides support for LONI 
consists of Louisiana State University’s Center for Computation & 
Technology (CCT) and Information Technology Services (ITS). Due to this 
prestigious two year grant award, HPC will be *_hiring “so, please visit
