Birds of a Feather (BOF) session at Supercomputing 10
NSF Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2)
This session invites the scientific research community to discuss the role of software in advancing computational science. Scientific discovery and innovation are advancing fundamentally new pathways opened by development of increasingly sophisticated software, as put forth in the US National Science Foundation’s future vision of Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CF21)
Software is an integral part of the computation paradigm and a primary modality for realizing this vision. Software is also directly responsible for increased scientific productivity and significant enhancement of researchers' capabilities. In order to nurture, accelerate and sustain this critical mode of scientific progress, NSF has established a new program, Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), with the overarching goal of transforming innovations in research and education into sustained software resources that are an integral part of the cyberinfrastructure. At this session, representatives of NSF will share the results of several community-building workshops and discuss the next call for research proposals for its new program, which will involve the establishment of Scientific Software Innovation Institutes (S2I2) as long-term community-wide hubs of sustained software excellence. The U.S. and international communities are invited to participate in and contribute to this discussion of the challenges of building an infrastructure for sustainability of software supporting scientific research.
