Large Scale Production Computing and Storage Requirements for Nuclear Physics: Target 2017


This invitation-only review is organized by the Department of Energy's Offices of Nuclear Physics (NP) and Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) and by NERSC. The goal is to determine production high-performance computing, storage, and services that will be needed for NP 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 result will be a report that outlines HPC requirements for NP 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.
