Centers and Institutes
SciDAC’s Centers for Enabling Technology (CETs) and the Institutes have been building a software infrastructure; a comprehensive, integrated, scalable, and robust high performance software environment, which overcomes difficult technical challenges to quickly enable the effective use of terascale and petascale systems by SciDAC applications. CETs address needs for: new algorithms which scale to parallel systems having hundreds of thousands of processors; methodology for achieving portability and interoperability of complex high performance scientific software packages; operating systems and runtime tools and support for application execution performance and system management; and effective tools for feature identification, data management and visualization of petabyte-scale scientific data sets. CETs also address the Distributed Science Software Environment elements of the SciDAC program. SciDAC Institutes are university-led centers of excellence intended to complement the efforts of the SciDAC Centers for Enabling Technologies and to increase the presence of the program in the academic community.
