SciDAC: Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing

SciDAC
Applying advanced software and algorithms to complex science and engineering problems

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program brings together many of the nation’s top researchers to develop new computational methods for tackling some of the most challenging scientific problems.

The Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne has been awarded SciDAC-4 grants to work on advanced software and algorithms and their application to complex problems important to science and engineering.

SciDAC-4 Application Partnerships - collaborating with domain scientists in areas ranging from biological research to data analytics and nuclear physics.

SciDAC-4 Institutes - providing intellectual resources in applied mathematics and computer science, expertise in algorithms and methods, and software tools for scientific problem solving.

Building on the accomplishments of these two institutes, the MCS Division recently has been awarded SciDAC-5 funding for two new institutes: Frameworks, Algorithms, and Scalable Technologies for Mathematics (FASTMath) and RAPIDS2: SciDAC Institute for Computer Science, Data, and Artificial Intelligence. Robert Ross is lead of RAPIDS2, and Todd Munson is Argonne lead of the new FASTMath Institute. See the web announcement for information about these institutes.
