    An intercontinental network of supercomputers spanning more than 10 000 miles and running challenging scientific applications was realized at the Supercomputing '99 (SC99) conference in Portland, OR using PACX-MPI and ATM PVCs. In this paper, we describe how we constructed the heterogeneous cluster of supercomputers, the problems we confronted in terms of multi-architecture and the way several applications handled the specific requirements of a metacomputer. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
