Problem Solving Environments for Large-Scale Scientific Computing

10:45 AM-12:45 PM
Room: Capitol Center

Problem Solving Environments (PSEs) are computer systems that provide all the computational facilities to solve a target class of problems. These facilities typically include methods for solution, checking the problem formulation, visualizing the solution, and selecting computers. Ideal PSEs will make many decisions for users. The speakers in this session will illustrate the current possibilities for creating effective frameworks and software architectures for PSEs and the use of software practice and development for very large-scale applications.

PSEs are now a widely recognized, but still new, way to provide computational power to users. This minisymposium will focus on large scale applications illustrated by the DOE ASCI program.
