Divisions & Facilities
The Computing Sciences Area is comprised of four divisions that operate two national user facilities. Our two research divisions – Applied Mathematics and Computational Research (AMCR) and Scientific Data (SciData) – are home to mathematicians, computer scientists (who study and innovate in computing architectures, software, and algorithms), and computational scientists (who specialize in using computational methods to study non-computer science subjects, such as climate or physics). The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) is DOE national user facility and the primary high-performance computing center serving researchers across the DOE Office of Science complex. It is housed within the eponymous NERSC Division. The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), also a national user facility, is the Department of Energy's dedicated science network, helping researchers meet their goals from experiment to discovery. It is situated within the Scientific Networking Division.
