The Future Computing (FC) Community of Interest (CoI) meeting on August 5–6, 2019, explored the evolving computing landscape to inform agencies about potential opportunities as well as gaps in the Nation’s future computing objectives. The meeting focused on where computing will be in the next decade and beyond while also looking at emerging and future applications. It considered the need for new software concepts and approaches to effectively capitalize on new hardware architectures and paradigms. The long period of sustained growth in computing power over the last five decades, characterized by Moore’s Law and Dennard Scaling, is expected to end over the next decade. The continued improvement in computing performance will now require moving to new modalities and new means of cooperation and partnership for the benefit of the Nation.

The FC-CoI meeting was held at the offices of the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program in Washington, D.C. The meeting brought together key members of industry, academia, and the Federal Government over a two-day period to discuss the future of computing. The meeting had been advertised in the Federal Register to encourage broad participation from the advanced computing community. More detail about the meeting is available at
