DOE Program Managers
The key components of the SciDAC program are SciDAC Institutes and SciDAC Partnerships. While the Institutes form the foundation for efforts by applied mathematicians and computer scientists to systematically address technical challenges that are inherent to the scale of new architectures and common across a wide range of science topics, the Partnerships enable scientists to conduct complex scientific and engineering computations at a level of fidelity needed to simulate real-world conditions in targeted science projects.
Currently 19 scientific computation partnerships are co-funded by ASCR and its partnering Office of Science core programs: Basic Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research, Fusion Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics.
- Exploit leadership class computing resources to advance scientific frontiers in an area of strategic importance to the partnering DOE programs, and
- Effectively link to the intellectual resources in applied mathematics and computer science, expertise in algorithms and methods, and scientific software tools at one, or more, SciDAC Institutes.
