Biographical history

Early in 1999, the Board of the Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing (APAC) was established under the chairmanship of Professor David Beanland, followed with the appointment of the foundation Executive Director, Professor John O’Callaghan. APAC was formally launched late in 1999 through a partnership of organisations, and consortia of organisations to fund a National Facility and building of expertise and education programs in the use of advanced computing in research. APAC operated in two phases. Its first phase, funded largely from the Australian Research Council comprised the establishment of the National Facility— hosted through the ANU Supercomputing Facility. The second phase of APAC operations (2004–07) were funded through the System Infrastructure Initiatives of the Commonwealth Government. In 2007 APAC was replaced with the National Computational Infrastructure.
