Computational Computing at the Imaging and Computing Center

Research and Curricular Computing and the Imaging and Computing Center offer support for Computational Computing at Bates College. We will support faculty scholarship projects, curricular projects, and facilitate access to computing resources at Bates and abroad.

Obtaining Support: Faculty who need support for curricular and research computing projects should contact Mathieu Duvall (Manager of the Imaging and Computing Center;, Michael Hanrahan (Director of Research and Curricular Computing;, or Andrew White (Director of Academic Technology Services; We will support faculty curricular and research projects and facilitate access to appropriate computing resources whenever possible. Bates has a number of such resources, and others are available from outside Bates.
A partial list of resources/support services available:

  • Location of and facilitation of access to external (non-Bates) computing resources .
  • Shared computing resources – Linux machines for running computationally intensive jobs.
  • Computation workstations (2x MacPro – see Matt for more information).
  • Technical expertise and servers for database application development.
  • Multiple computer labs suitable for Impermanent cluster computing.
  • Broad support options for curricular and research projects.
  • Institutional support for projects through faculty/student/ILS collaborations

If you desire computational support for your academic work at Bates, please contact us. We can work together to solve your computational computing needs.
