The Tasmanian Partnership for Advanced Computing (TPAC) is located at the University of Tasmania in Hobart. In addition to the University of Tasmania, the partners include CSIRO, the Australian Antarctic Division, Antarctic Climate & Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (ACE CRC), Bureau of Meteorology, Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies, and the Australian Maritime College.

TPAC is one of the most experienced high performance computing (HPC) centres in Australia – having been established in 1994. It is also a frontrunner in the delivery of data to the research community – providing datasets over the Internet for climate scientists, meteorologists, oceanographers and other earth science experts.
