Enabling Discoveries That Advance Science and Society Through Advanced Computing Technologies

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) designs and operates some of the world's most powerful computing resources.

Getting Started

Create an Account

Fill out the account request form on the TACC Account Management Portal and it will be reviewed by our User Services team.

Faculty, professional research staff, and postdoctoral researchers may request Principle Investigator (PI) eligibility for their account. PIs are responsible for requesting system allocations and managing their team.

Graduate and undergraduate students can create an account, but must be added to allocations by PIs to use the systems.

Create Account

Request an Allocation

To access a system, you must request through an allocation opportunity.

Browse the System List, Allocations, and Software List to help determine what system and allocation fits your research.

If you are a PI, log into your account and request an allocation on the system that fits your research needs.

Upcoming Training

Machine Learning @ TACC [COURSE FULL]

The tutorial will help new users to get started with data-driven analysis on supercomputers.


BootUp/ReBoot @ TACC Institute

A dual boot camp focused on immersing you into the research life cycle, where you'll solve a computational scientific model, iteratively. Generate data, verify and validate the data, update the model, revisit the data... repeat until the model accurately predicts a real-life phenomenon. This is the research life cycle. Part training, part code-a-thon, part hackathon.


WeTeach_CS Summit 2023

A 2-day event which educates, empowers, and inspires K-12 CS and Cybersecurity teachers, advocates, administrators, professional development providers, university instructors, and policymakers to advance the goal of CS for All in Texas and beyond.


Machine Learning Institute

At TACC ML Institute, we will walk you through the basics, state-the-of-art methods, modern tools, and hands-on exercises of machine learning and deep learning at supercomputer scale.
