David J. Dean, DOE Office of the Under Secretary for Science
Advancing Simulations for Science and Innovation
Argonne Physics Division Colloquium - 8 Oct 2010
11:00 AM, Building 203 auditorium

In this talk, I will explore how the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) can utilize one of its core capabilities - simulations - in order to positively affect U.S. innovation and competitiveness. I will begin by pointing out some of the policy drivers for science and innovation that have implications for computing broadly. I will then discuss some of the current capabilities and challenges to continued progress in computational science, and some of the exciting science that lies ahead in nuclear physics. I will then describe how one might apply the DOE's computational science capability to accelerate the innovation cycle in the U.S.
