I am looking for one or two TeraGrid users who have an interest in 
data-parallel analysis with R. We are deploying the center Remote Data 
Analysis and Visualization (RDAV). The center will become operational 
sometime around mid 2010 but a small number of "friendly" users will be 
able to begin use a few months earlier. See 
for a description of RDAV resources. This will be a 1024 core shared 
memory system that will include 16 GPUs, four terabytes of memory, and a 
petabyte parallel file system.

Among other resources, the center will maintain an Rmpi enabled R 
environment along with additional convenience functions for developing 
large parallel data analysis applications. The RDAV will be co-located 
with the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) 

Please let me know if you are interested in being an early R user of 
this system and also let me know what is your current TeraGrid 
relationship (see http://www.teragrid.org/userinfo/ and
