RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS)

Satoshi  Matsuoka(Ph.D.) Director: Satoshi Matsuoka (Ph.D.)

As the leadership center of high-performance computing, the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) explores the "Science of computing, by computing, and for computing." The outcomes of the exploration – the technologies such as open-source software – are its core competence. The R-CCS strives to enhance the core competence and to promote the technologies throughout the world.

The R-CCS, in collaboration with Fujitsu, developed Fugaku, the most powerful supercomputer in the world. Full operations of Fugaku began in March 2021, offering orders of magnitude increase in computing capabilities and synergy with other IT ecosystems, such as big data and artificial intelligence.

In the past the R-CCS operated the K computer (2012-2019), which resulted in multitudes of world-leading scientific and engineering results, not only by the academia but also by the industry.
