Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)

ASCR is Pleased to Announce:

Four SciDAC Institutes have been funded under the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) Activity for FY2012 – 2016. Learn more »

Three Exascale Co-Design Centers have been funded under the SciDAC Activity, starting in FY2011. Learn more » 

The Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program was initiated in 2001 as a partnership involving all of the Office of Science (SC) program offices to dramatically accelerate progress in scientific computing that delivers breakthrough scientific results through partnerships comprised of applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and scientists from other disciplines. The SciDAC program was re-competed in 2006 and recently in 2011, and the partnerships were extended to include the DOE National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Through partnerships with ASCR-funded mathematicians and computer scientists, SciDAC applications pursued computational solutions to challenging problems in climate science, fusion research, high energy physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, material science, chemistry, particle accelerators, biology and the reactive subsurface flow of contaminants through groundwater. Today the SciDAC program is recognized as the leader in accelerating the use of high-performance computing to advance the state of knowledge in science applications. Historical information on the previous portfolios can be found on the SciDAC web site. (http://www.scidac.govExternal link)
