One of the SOS8 program's principal goals is to assemble interdisciplinary teams and collaboratories to develop the necessary state-of-the-art mathematical algorithms and software, supported by appropriate hardware and middleware infrastructure, to use terascale computers effectively to advance fundamental research in science central to the SOS8 science mission. The overarching goal of the first SOS meeting was to familiarize all participants with the overall integrated SOS program and to initiate team building, both across DOE laboratories and with academia to support that integration across projects.
The theme this year is "Advanced Computer Architectures for Science."
We will be discussing machines such as Sandia's Redstorm, Cray's X1, IBM's BlueGene, and any other architectures being designed to solve "ultra-scale science problems."
Ultra-scale Science areas to be addressed include: nanoscience, biology, climate, and chemistry. Others?
