Welcome to CCCF
TIFR Computer Center is responsible for providing computing and networking facilities to TIFR users and groups. Computing has become an essential tool for almost all scientific research. At TIFR, computers are extensively used both in scientific computation as well as in preparation and publication of scientific papers.
Scientific data and papers on research carried out by the TIFR members are archived on computers, often in a form accessible over the network. Moreover, most scientists make a heavy use of Internet and email facilities for scientific literature access and collaboration. TIFR also uses computers for processing of administrative and accounting data.
Services offered by the computer center include internet and telephone connectivity, software distribution, and central computing facility.
