Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering

SESSION: Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Manish Parashar, James C. Browne


The intersection of applied mathematics, computer science, and core science and engineering disciplines defines an emerging discipline “Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E)” with a compelling multidisciplinary research agenda. Recognizing the importance of CDS&E NSF is recommending the establishment of a formal CDS&E program under the stewardship of the Office of CyberInfrastructure. Scientific and engineering disciplines based on solution of partial differential equations, together with applied mathematics, pioneered the development of CDS&E. The past decade has seen a dramatic broadening of scope and enlarging of applicable technologies. Biology, biochemistry, medicine and other disciplines are becoming increasing dependent not only upon computational experiments but also data analysis and correlation methods. Algorithms and computational methods based on trees, graphs and irregular structures are the basis for many of the disciplines now integrating computation into research (and teaching) on a routine basis. Data analysis algorithms and methods ranging from statistical methods and data mining to visualization, to knowledge based methods to formal model based algorithms are required to extract knowledge and insights from the enormous volumes of complex data generated by today’s computational engines. Direct coupling of physical experiments and computational analysis, modeling and control opens an entire domain of science and engineering. The increasing complexity of leading edge computational and analytical resources requires increasing sophistication for effective use. These transitions are qualitative. The important questions to be answered include: (1) Given this broadened scope of CSD&E, what is the research agenda for applied computer science and engineering in the context of CDS&E? (2) What is the academic agenda and the processes and rewards structures required to develop and sustain such an agenda? The goal of this BoF is to explore these questions. The subgoal is to gather the basis for a workshop that can describe, define the needed structures and mechanisms.
