Report of the Task Force on Next Generation High Performance Computing

The SEAB Task Force on Next Generation High Performance Computing (TFHPC) was established by the Secretary of Energy on December 20, 2014 to review the mission and national capabilities related to next generation high performance computing.  The Task Force’s findings and recommendations are framed by three broad considerations including a “new” alignment between classical and data-centric computing to develop a balanced computational ecosystem; the DOE historical role and expertise in the science, technology, program management and partnering, and recognize its vital role across USG, including in the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI); exascale investment as well as nurturing the health of the overall high performance computing ecosystem, which includes investment in people, and in mathematics, computer science, software engineering, basic sciences, and materials science and engineering.
