Establishment of the Research System for Computational Science（Fiscal Year 2012）
An optimal software and execution environment will be developed to enable life science and computational life science researchers to efficiently utilize the HPCI environment centered on K computer. For this purpose, close and continuing collaboration will be established with research and development groups. In addition, the wide-spread use and dissemination of information, the promotion of increased understanding, and the development of research and educational personnel with respect to the HPCI, which are all closely connected with the research and development groups, will be sought, based on collaboration with organizations in other strategic fields, the Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS), and the High Performance Computing Infrastructure Consortium.

II Planning and Coordination Group（Satoru Tomita, RIKEN）
Our mission is to foster the skills necessary to support research and development in high-performance computing and to raise awareness of career opportunities in computational life sciences among young people. To accomplish these goals, we organized specialized training programs in collaboration with Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Computational Biology Research Center (CBRC) and Osaka University, and have developed educational outreach programs for high school students and undergraduate and graduate students.
