Institute for High-Performance Computational Science with Structured Meshes and Particles (HPCS-SMP)
HPCS-SMP is a conceptualization effort for the NSF SI2 program. It proposes an HPC simulation software Institute across multiple science grand challenge areas. Through a series of workshops with domain science simulation experts, we are identifying opportunities to leverage software infrastructure, expertise and collaboration between software developers and application scientists, to evolve new HPC grand challenge simulation capabilities in their fields. Work is a collaboration between UC Berkeley and Rice.
About Berkeley Lab
Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 16 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
