The ASC Program pursues long-term simulation and computing goals relevant to the broad national security missions of the NNSA. This includes laboratory codes, and computer engineering and science projects. Areas of research include:
- Next Generation Code Development and Application: Long-term research that investigates how future code development must address new HPC challenges of massive, heterogeneous parallelism (both on-node and off-node) that require adoption of new programming models and data management techniques, including co-design of applications and systems.
- Next Generation Architecture and Software Development: Long-term computing technology research to influence the shift in computing technology to extreme, heterogeneous architectures and to mitigate its impact and advance its capabilities for ASC simulation codes.
