WELCOME TO THE MUSES PROJECT
MUSES is an NSF-funded large collaboration project that is developing a new cyberinfrastructure to provide the scientific community novel tools to answer critical interdisciplinary questions in nuclear physics, gravitational wave astrophysics, and heavy-ion physics.DOCUMENTATION
Cloud-native & Scalable
The MUSES cyberinfrastructure is more than the Calculation Engine. We are building a cloud native deployment system based on the latest container technologies, leveraging the power of Kubernetes to create a reproducible environment compatible with a wide range of hosting platforms. Individuals and organizations can deploy their own MUSES on-premises, utilizing their own backend computing solutions and maintaining full control over their data.
The MUSES collaboration consists of many researchers and technical professionals across dozens of institutions spread across the globe. We are building and using a collaborative platform designed for the demands of inclusive and vibrant scientific communities.
Community chat and teleconferencing
Matrix is the frontier of free, open source, and decentralized communications. We host the MUSES space on Matrix and rooms created for general discussion, support, and outreach, while providing a federated way for the general public to connect with the project.
Users can launch dedicated JupyterLab servers, providing a powerful platform to process data using the high-performance computers at NCSA. A custom Universal Worker Service API server provides asynchronous parallel processing via Kubernetes Jobs, with support for NCSA Delta coming soon.
Organization & Leadership
The MUSES collaboration leadership structure is found on the MUSES Organization website hosted by the University of Illinois Physics department.VIEW ALL MEMBERS
