Abstract

Facility, and Research Data Program. The ELDORA Project will join them next fall. ATD's neighbors in Building 1 are UCAR Finance and Administration, NCAR Archives, Shipping and Receiving, and the Machine Shop. If this sounds like too much to fit into one building, note that each floor covers about an Supercomputing '92 acre. Supercomputing '92 will take place on 16 The core of the center building is a three-story floor- November 1992 in Exhibit Hall A at the to-ceiling atrium—complete with skylights and trees— Minneapolis Convention Center.
