Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Strategic Issues for ASCR Enabling World Leadership in Science Providing high performance computing and network facilities; Maintaining world-class research effort in applied mathematics, computer science, and computer networks; Effective partnerships with applications scientists in all of the Offices in SC; Effective partnerships with other Federal Agencies; Accelerating transition from research to application; and Long-Term support of software.
Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Research to Enable New Frontiers in Science though Simulation The mathematics of complex and multiscale systems; Ultrascalable algorithms for petascale systems The computer science to enable advanced computers; and The computer science to transform petabytes of data into knowledge. Basic Research SciDAC ISIC Deployment to Facilities Deployment to Users Long Term Support
Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Compute Facilities and Testbeds Experimental Proof of concept Small scale research projects Research and Evaluation (R&E )Prototype Sufficient scale to enable evaluation of scientific potential Research Projects Enables new science for a few brave users High Performance Production Capability Stable, multi-user capability environment Large user support, consulting and training investment Direct support of agency mission Leadership-Class Most Capable System available for a class of applications Small number of projects Resource for national science community, managed similar to light source or high energy physics facility Definitions
Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Compute Facilities and Testbeds Strategy Maintain Current Investment in High Performance Production Capability for SC Missions; Increase number of R&E Prototypes; Not all funded by ASCR Reduce architecture risk Manage as research projects Improve coupling with vendors in design stage Couple software research to facility and testbed operations; Leadership-Class Compute Capability for Open Science; and Tighten coupling between R&E Prototype Evaluation and High Performance Production Capability and Leadership-Class

Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Effective Partnerships with Applications Scientists Partnerships Strategy Build on SciDAC; Partnerships are critical to ASCR; Increase joint Program Office collaboration to plan partnerships; SciDAC Genomes to Life Nanoscience Fusion Simulation Project ASCR funds math, computer science and “glue” while Program Offices fund science;
Office of Science U.S. Department of Energy Effective Partnerships with Application Scientists Long Term Support of Software Strategy Critical issue for delivery of software resulting from ASCR research as well as application community codes; Must be coupled to research but is not research; Issues: Can be very expensive; Low volume niche market; Distributed benefit, centralized cost; Many previous models have failed; Hard to make a priority in a research environment.
