NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Science at NERSC

NERSC's core mission is to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. NERSC and its nearly 6,000 users are are extremely active contributors to all fields of energy-related science in which computation and data analysis play a central role. NERSC is citied in about 1,500 refereed scientific publications per year. A complete list of science articles is at Science News and science presentations can be found at Science Highlights Presentations. On these pages we present some highlights from our users and describe some of the ways NERSC gathers requirements for science and recognizes its users accomplishments.

NERSC Science Engagements

At NERSC, science comes first. NERSC systems and services are designed to enable and support cutting-edge research within the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science. NERSC engages with the scientific community in many ways both formally and informally. Among the more formal mechanisms are the NERSC Requirements Reviews, which have now become the DOE Exascale Requirements Reviews jointly with the Argonne and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing facilities, regular meetings with the NERSC Users… Read More »
