    Research/Technical Areas

    SRP-HPC is a partnership between Sustainable Horizons Institute and the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP), an aggressive multi-lab research, development, and deployment project focused on delivery of mission-critical applications, an integrated software stack, and exascale hardware technology advances.

    Application development

    Developing simulation capabilities for chemistry, materials, energy, Earth, and space science, data analytics, optimization, AI, national security, and more. Examples include revealing the underlying properties of matter, designing new materials and energy technologies, discovering the origin of the universe, and creating new machine learning techniques.

    Software technology

    Building software technologies that power HPC discoveries, including open-source programming models and runtimes, scalable math libraries, data and visualization packages, development tools, and more. Examples include exploring new algorithmic approaches, computing and communication protocols, and data management.

    Hardware and integration

    Deploying an exascale software stack, including software integration and testing across leadership computing environments. Improving software productivity and sustainability to help advance scientific productivity.
