The Centre was founded as the result of joint efforts of Novosibirsk State University
and Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences in the frameworks of Novosibirsk
scientific educational consortium on the training of specialists in priority trends of
fundamental research and critical technologies with the financial support of the special
federal program "Integration of science and education" on the basis of leading
scientific schools of Novosibirsk Scientific Centre (SB RAS) in the field of mathematical
modelling, computational mathematics and computer studies.
On the part of Siberian Branch of RAS, the active role in the foundation of the centre and its work has been played by: Institute of computational mathematics and mathematical geophysics, Institute of computational technologies and Institute of informatics systems.
Scientific and methodological supervision is carried out by the chairs of Mechanics and Mathematics Department (MMD) of NSU: "Computational mathematics", "Computational systems", "Mathematical methods of geophysics", "Mathematical modelling", "Programming". Every year, more than 250 students of MMD specialize at the chairs.
The Centre aims at the improvement of fundamental training of specialists at the chairs of MMD NSU during the period of scientific practical training for students as well as research training for Masters and post-graduates. It'll be achieved as the result of their taking part in fundamental research on main trends of scientific investigations of the chairs and Institutes-founders; as the result of them being able to use modern powerful computers and modern information technologies as well as abilities of world wide web through Internet.
The Centre includes 16 working places on the basis of PCs (working stations) Intel Core™2Duo, HP Laser Jet 6L printer, MUSTEK 600 II CD scanner.
The Facilities of the Center can be used Monday through Friday 9:00 - 21:00, on Saturday - 9:00 - 15:00.
