Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Heh. Again, I get to use “PRESBUD”.

Melissa Norr has written a close up of the President’s budget request for 09 and what it means for the Office of Science in the DOE. They have another increase in store, and HPC does well

  • Applied mathematics and computer science research $93.2 million
  • Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) $58.1 million
  • High-performance computing and network facilities and testbeds $217.5 million

The HPC number includes funding for NERSC, ORNL, Argonne, and ESNet.
