The HASTAC Vision: Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory
Larry McDaniel
National Center for Atmospheric Research

HASTAC is founded on the belief that the future of cyberinfrastructure must be driven by creative discovery across disciplinary divides because of the profound impact of new technologies on individuals and society. The HASTAC Consortium is a strategic alliance of scientists, humanists, artists, social theorists, legal specialists, and information technology specialists who will think transformatively about their disciplines and engage in the design and application of innovative computing and scientific technologies for the humanities, arts, and interpretive social sciences.

The founding HASTAC members include NCAR, the National Center for Atmospheric Research; NCSA, the University of California Humanities Research Institute; Duke University's John Hope Franklin Center and Humanities Institute, Maryland Institute for Technology and the Humanities (MITH); Stanford Humanities Lab; Virginia Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities; San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego; Minority Serving Institutions High-performance Computing Working Group; Creative Commons (an advocacy group supporting flexible intellectual property licensing applications); California Digital Library; and several other major digital archiving and exhibition centers, along with groups with overlapping concerns such as the Coalition for Networked Information, the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage, and industry partners.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.
