Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure April 2, 2014 Advisory Committee for Cyberinfrastructure Wayne Van Citters Senior Advisor Office of the Assistant Director Mathematical and Physical Sciences
Outline Context CI elements of the MPS facilities portfolio Some challenges to ACI collaborations and why they may exist
The National Science Foundation Materials Mathematics Astronomy Chemistry Physics 2H 2 O2H 2 + O 2
Chemistry (CHE) Materials Research (DMR) Mathematics (DMS) Astronomy (AST) Astronomy (AST) Physics (PHY) Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) 74% IIA, Small Teams 84% IIA Small Teams IIA, Small Teams 63% 30% Facilities IIA, Small Teams 56% 19% Facilities IIA Small Teams 57% 18% Facilities $ 233M$ 229M$ 291M$ 220M$ 251M
Astronomy (AST) Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST (ATST)) National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) Arecibo Observatory Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) Gemini Observatory Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) National Solar Observatory (NSO) Physics (PHY) Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) Materials Research (DMR) Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) 57% 30% 19%
30% 19% Two Different Budget Lines for Facilities AST PHY DMR Operations (R&RA) ALMA IceCube Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) DKISTLSST 57%
Two Different Budget Lines for Facilities Operations (R&RA) Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) NSF Budget (millions) Not-to-exceed cost for a scope delivered on schedule Resultant intense pressure on Project Managers ARRA
POTENTIAL BARRIERS NIH (not the agency!) Natural desire for local control Uncertainty about continuity of service Different cultures Mutual lack of awareness (what ACI can provide; what facility needs) Flat budgets - priority given to staff and instrumentation 9
