1 Presented by Suzy Tichenor Director, Industrial Partnerships Program Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate Oak Ridge National Laboratory DOE Software Workshop March 31, 2011 Chicago

2 2Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy  What: 10 year DOE program to parallelize / scale legacy codes - write new DOE codes to take advantage of leadership computing systems  Why: To enable scientific discovery and address DOE mission critical problems in the physical, biological, and environmental sciences Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)

3 3Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy How:  Applied math, CS, and physical sciences make proposals that call out specific collaborations  Institutes and Centers for Enabling Technology drive Scientific Application Partnerships  35 projects: 9 centers, 4 institutes, 19 efforts in 12 application areas (Astrophysics, Accelerator Science, Climate, Biology, Fusion, Petabyte data, Materials & Chemistry, Nuclear physics, High Energy physics, QCD, Turbulence, Groundwater) Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)

4 4Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy Output:  Developed over 60 SW packages to solve breadth of SW challenges relevant to today’s multicore environment Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)

5 5Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy Opportunity:  DOE has never had focused outreach about the potential applicability of this software to private sector SW developers Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)

6 6Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy  DOE recognizes that the cost and difficulty to scalablly parallelize legacy codes can be prohibitive…especially for small busiesses  Also a challenge for large (Fortune 500) firms that still maintain internal SW development capabilities Why Reach Out to the Private Sector

7 7Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy Workshop Goals  Introduce ISVs / industry to this software and its developers  Explain the process to obtain at no cost  Include small businesses who are particularly vulnerable to the high cost / difficulty of transitioning legacy codes to multicore  Identify private sector SW development requirements to help DOE understand areas for collaboration..and potential SBIR topics.

8 8Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy  One day  “Speed dating” format: Quick hits on a number of SciDAC tools and applications  Explanation of the SBIR program: how it works  Overview of key open source licensing concepts (i.e this is readily accessible)  Discussion of Cost (generally none) Workshop Agenda

9 9Managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy Observations  65 attendees representing large and small ISVs, user companies with internal software development capabilities, engineering service firms, universities  Most firms were not aware of the SciDAC program and the availability of this software  Most attendees discovered something that they think they can use  Most attendees wanted more information and we provided contact data for follow up.  A solid first effort, with room to grow.
