The DOE Office of Science brought together key computational domain scientists, and DOE planners and administrators to determine the requirements for an exascale ecosystem that includes computation, data analysis, software, workflows, HPC services, and the full-scale range of computer requirements needed to support forefront scientific research through 2025.
This effort helps ASCR Facilities Division develop a strategic roadmap to inform future ASCR compute and data facility investments, ASCR Facility Division partnerships with Office of Science stakeholders (ASCR R&D, BES, BER, FES, HEP, and NP) and inform the Office of Science research agenda.
Meetings were held for each of the DOE’s six Office of Science (SC) program offices, as follows:
Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)
The ALCF provides the computational science community with a world-class computing capability dedicated to breakthrough science and engineering.
Energy Sciences Network
ESnet provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at national laboratories, universities and other research institutions, enabling them to collaborate on some of the world’s most important scientific challenges including energy, climate science, and the origins of the universe.
National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC)
The NERSC is the workhorse high performance computing facility for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, and is a world leader in accelerating scientific discovery through computation.
Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF)
The OLCF accelerates scientific discovery and engineering progress by providing outstanding computing and data management resources to high-priority research and development projects.
