TechApps are short, two-page research highlights written in a style that is accessible to a broad technical audience.  The term "TechApp" originated at Thinking Machines Corporation, one of the first parallel supercomputer companies, in the early 1990s.  CARC compiles an updated set of professionally-printed TechApps each fall for distribution to federal program officers and attendees at the international Supercomputing Conference, the UNM Office of the Vice President for Research, the UNM President's Office, and the UNM Board of Regents.  TechApps may also describe computational courses or programs, and can be submitted at any time throughout the year.  If you would like to submit a new or updated TechApp, please use one of these exemplar Word files as a template:

All TechApps are reviewed by the Director and finalized in conjunction with the submitting author.  Upon request, authors will be provided with up to 20 reprints, free of charge.
