The HEP SciDAC portfolio focuses on the following major areas: Dark Universe, Computational Lattice Gauge Theory, Accelerator Modeling and Simulation and End-to-End Simulation of Data Facilities that will advance the HEP mission by fully exploiting leadership class computing resources.

Current Projects

Community Project for Accelerator Science and Simulation (ComPASS)
The mission of the ComPASS collaboration is to develop and deploy the state-of-the-art accelerator modeling tools necessary to advance new designs, concepts and technologies for particle accelerators.

Lead Investigator: Panagiotis Spentzouris (
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Exascale Algorithms and Software for Lattice Field Theory
This project is part of the software and algorithm development effort of the USQCD Collaboration.

Lead Investigator: Paul Mackenzie (
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Computing the Sky: Simulation and Analysis for Cosmological Surveys
This project aims to build next-generation computational cosmology prediction and analysis frameworks that are directly targeted to current and future observations.

Lead Investigator: Salman Habib (
Argonne National Laboratory

Optimizing HEP Data Management and Analysis Capabilities
This project aims to prototype an end-to-end simulation of data facilities that support extreme-scale computing by studying and simulating Fermilab's HEP scientific data facility and validating against actual data facility logging information.
