The purpose of the Center for Integrated Data Science (CIDAS) is to construct infrastructure and conduct research and development to realize cutting-edge science for space and solar-terrestrial systems through integrated analyses using various kinds of observation data and advanced computer simulations.
CIDAS operates many projects in cooperation with the research divisions and the centers of Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE), as well as other universities and institutes. Integrated studies using both observations and simulations are essential to increasing scientific knowledge. For the studies, CIDAS develops various software, databases, and high-performance computing facility, and provides them to researchers across the world as the joint research programs of ISEE. CIDAS also contributes to building facilities for the research community and facilitate scientific achievement through community projects.
