The  FutureGrid Project provides a capability that makes it possible for researchers to tackle complex research challenges in computer science related to the use and security of grids and clouds. These include topics ranging from authentication, authorization, scheduling, virtualization, middleware design, interface design and cybersecurity, to the optimization of grid-enabled and cloud-enabled computational schemes for researchers in astronomy, chemistry, biology, engineering, atmospheric science and epidemiology. The project team will provide a significant new experimental computing grid and cloud test-bed, named FutureGrid, to the research community, together with user support for third-party researchers conducting experiments on FutureGrid.

The SUPER project is a broadly-based SciDAC institute with expertise in compilers and other system tools, performance engineering, energy management, and resilience. The goal of the project is to ensure that DOE’s computational scientists can successfully exploit the emerging generation of high performance computing (HPC) systems. This goal will be met by providing application scientists with strategies and tools to productively maximize performance, conserve energy, and attain resilience.

The mission of the Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS) is to improve the quality and accelerate the development process of complex simulation codes in science and engineering that are being designed to run on highly-parallel computer systems. For this purpose, we are developing integrated state-of-the-art programming tools for high-performance computing that assist programmers in diagnosing programming errors and optimizing the performance of their applications.
