Dignitaries are expected to be on hand for the official "ground-breaking" at 10 a.m. Thursday for the Joint institute for Computational Sciences and the Oak Ridge Center for Advanced Studies at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The $10 million facility, located on the main ORNL complex, is funded by the state of Tennessee and will be managed jointly by the University of Tennessee and the laboratory.
Gov. Don Sundquist, U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp, R-3rd District, and UT President John Shumaker are scheduled to participate in the ceremony.
Officials were asking those interested in sending a representative to call ORNL Communications and Community Outreach at (865) 576-1946 no later than 5 this evening.
The Joint Institute marks a first-time partnership between ORNL, UT and the state of Tennessee, according to an ORNL press statement.
