Large-scale simulation and analysis of massive amounts of data are revolutionizing science and engineering. Advanced computing capabilities are essential to tackle a rapidly growing array of science and engineering challenges, many of which are computing-, communications- and data-intensive.

A newly released report commissioned by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and conducted by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine examines priorities and associated trade-offs for advanced computing investments and strategy. The Future Directions for NSF Advanced Computing Infrastructure to Support U.S. Science and Engineering in 2017-2020 report is based on community input from more than 60 individuals, research groups and organizations.
