The Committee encourages the Office Fusion Energy Sciences Program to closely collaborate with the Office of Basic Energy Sciences, the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research
, the Office of Nuclear Energy, and the National Nuclear Security Administration to address mutual needs for technology development in magnetic fusion, inertial fusion, and next-generation fission reactor concepts.
Bell, on the other hand, is an applied mathematician who has been developing algorithms to study combustion for the past 1 5 years with support from DOE's Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research
. He leads the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering at Berkeley Lab, which is funded by DOE's Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research
"This investment in sustaining and extending the Open Science Grid is an important component of the petascale science infrastructure," says Michael Strayer, director of the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing program and associate director for Advanced Scientific Computing Research
in the DOE's Office of Science.
Both the House and Senate bills would follow the administration proposal for DOE programs, including the transfer of Lawrence Livermore's Advanced Scientific Computing Research
and Intelligence programs to the DHS.
The Advanced Scientific Computing Research
Initiative was allocated $158 million, a decrease of $5 million from the request.
(f) FUSION SIMULATION PROJECT.--In collaboration with the Office of Science's Advanced Scientific Computing Research
program described in section 606, the Director shall carry out a computational project to advance the capability of fusion researchers to accurately simulate an entire fusion energy system.
The other five program offices are basic energy sciences, biological and environmental sciences, advanced scientific computing research
, high energy physics, and nuclear physics.
In the second charge, the FESAC is asked "to assist the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (OFES) in preparing a roadmap for a joint initiative with the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research
(OASCR)." The charge states that "the goal of this initiative should be to develop an improved capacity for Integrated Simulation and Optimization of Fusion Systems." Dr.
