Large Scale Production Computing and Storage Requirements for Basic Energy Sciences: Target 2017


This is an invitation-only review organized by the Department of Energy's Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES), Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR), and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). The goal is to determine production high-performance computing, storage, and services that will be needed for BES to achieve its science goals through 2017.

The review brings together DOE Program Managers, leading domain scientists, and NERSC personnel to ensure that NERSC continues to provide the world-class facilities and services needed to support DOE Office of Science research. The review will produce a report that outlines HPC requirements for BES computational research along with supporting narratives, illustrated by specific science-based case studies. Findings from the review will guide NERSC procurements and service offerings and will help ASCR Facilities Division justify support for Office of Science research.
