“The goal of this HEP-ASCR SciDAC 4 partnership program is to facilitate advanced and effective use of DOE HPC by major ongoing HEP experiments along with related theory and simulation activities and current and near term accelerator projects, via appropriate partnerships between the HEP and ASCR communities. The HPC systems embody a computing landscape and related hardware-software-data management computing eco-system of the future [ 6 ] and computational partnership research areas encompasses these. The HEP- ASCR Partnerships must work collaboratively across HEP experiments and research areas to develop shared computing solutions to address future HEP computing challenges related to use of DOE HPC. “

The SI2 program includes three classes of awards:

  1. Scientific Software Elements (SSE): SSE awards target small groups that will create and deploy robust software elementsfor which there is a demonstrated; these software elements will in turn advance one or more significant areas of science andengineering.
  2. Scientific Software Integration (SSI): SSI awards target larger, interdisciplinary teams organized around the development and application of common software infrastructure aimed at solving common research problems faced by NSF researchersin one or more areas of science and engineering. SSI awards will result in a sustainable community software framework serving a diverse community or communities.
  3. Scientific Software Innovation Institutes (S2I2): S2I2 awards will focus on the establishment of long-term hubs of excellence in software infrastructure and technologies,which will serve a research community of substantial size anddisciplinary breadth.
