Communities collaborate to take on next-generation technology
From Computing Bits, May and June 2015
Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) is a Department of Energy Office of Science program that funds projects with both advanced computing research and scientific elements. This encourages strong and effective partnerships between the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research and other research offices. Within each project, groups of different institutions then work together towards common goals.
The two main projects based at Fermilab are ComPASS, the Community Project for Accelerator Science and Simulation, led by Panagiotis Spentzouris, and “Searching for Physics beyond the Standard Model: Strongly Coupled Field Theories at the Intensity and Energy Frontiers,” which works on community software for Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics, led by Paul Mackenzie. SciDAC recently awarded both projects with funding for the next year.
