    PACES is a multi-disciplinary university research center located on the campus of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in El Paso, Texas. The efforts of the center revolve around the collaboration between the departments of Geological Sciences and Computer Science, and the center is closely linked with UTEP's Regional Geospatial Service Center. The presence of PACES on the USA-Mexico border affords an unique opportunity to address vital technical, geological, environmental, ecological, and social issues resulting from the proximity of these two great countries.
    PACES was founded as a NASA University Research Center, and currently attracts funding from a variety of sources, including the National Science Foundation.
