Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program - Preproposal Meeting Announcement

Dr. E. P. (Tony) Chen at the Sandia National Laboratories has posted the following entry in the Applied Mechanics Discussion Group on Apr. 20, 2006:

The primary goal of the Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program (PSAAP) is to establish validated, large-scale, multidisciplinary, simulation-based "Predictive Science² as a major academic and applied research program. The Program Statement lays out the goals for a multiyear program as a follow-on to the present ASC Alliance program. This ³Predictive Science² is the application of verified and validated computational simulations to predict properties and dynamics of complex systems. This process is potentially applicable to a variety of applications, from nuclear weapons effects to efficient manufacturing, global economics, to a basic understanding of the universe. Each of these simulations requires the integration of a diverse set of disciplines; each discipline in its own right is an important component of many applications. Success requires both software and algorithmic frameworks for integrating models and code from multiple disciplines into a single application and significant disciplinary strength and depth to make that integration effective.

A pre-proposal meeting has been scheduled on May 16-17 at the Hyatt Regency at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. For details. please refer to the website:
