All units moving to Coda from the Klaus Advanced Computing Building (KACB) have been given a new move-in date. The official move-in date for KACB occupants is now Friday, July 26. 

The School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is the largest unit set to move in to Coda at this time and the only school in its entirety that will be  transitioning to the new building.

CSE is relocating from KACB to the 13th floor of Coda, where it will neighbor with part of Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). All operations for CSE will remain on the 13th floor, while several faculty members will move to the various research neighborhoods which are spread over 11 floors of the 21-story building. 

The CSE faculty moving to research neighborhoods and their locations are:

  • Professor and CSE Interim Chair Srinivas Aluru: IDEaS – Floor 14

  • Associate Professor Le Song: Machine Learning – Floor 11

  • Associate Professor Jimeng Sun: Health Informatics – Floor 15

  • Professor Rich Vuduc: IDEaS – Floor 14

To compliment the research resources in Coda, the building comes equipped with one the largest data centers in the southeast, which includes a high-performance computing (HPC) resource. The HPC resource was acquired through a $3.7 million award from the National Science Foundation for a research effort led by CSE Interim Chair and Co-Executive Director of the Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) Srinivas Aluru.

“This project is exciting from many perspectives, but especially how it is pushing forward data and high performance computing research infrastructure at Georgia Tech,” said Aluru. “It reflects the teamwork of dozens of faculty, and also supports the work of over 50 research scientists and 200 graduate students.”

Once all Georgia Tech units have moved in, Coda will become the institute’s headquarters for data analytics research. The field itself requires significant expertise in computing and to accommodate this newly aggregated research groups’ needs, Georgia Tech is relocating its Office of Information Technology (OIT) to Coda.
