CSA Strategic Plan

Reviewed by an international committee of experts, the Computing Sciences Area 2019 Strategic Plan outlines a vision and the objectives and motivations for three strategic initiatives that will address the greatest needs and provide the greatest impact for the DOE research community over the next five years: Learning for Science, Beyond Moore, and the Superfacility model.

These three interconnected initiatives will build on existing activities in research and systems for modeling and simulation as well as experimental and observational science to harness the expertise and resources of our three divisions — NERSC, ESnet, and CRD — and deliver on our vision for the future of science.

In today’s research ecosystem, computation and mathematics are essential to scientific discovery. Over the next five years, their roles will continue to grow as the scientific process becomes increasingly automated, distributed, and reproducible.
