The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
NITRD -> NITRD Groups -> HEC IWG
The HEC IWG focuses on R&D for advancing high-capability computing and revolutionary computing paradigms, as well as providing the Nation with state of the art compute, communication, software, and associated infrastructure.
HEC R&D (known as EHCS) includes R&D of increasingly capable computing technologies and emerging computing technologies, such as quantum computing, neuromorphic computing, and other novel computing technologies, as well as support for hardening of research software. These have the potential to lay the foundation to extend U.S. global computing leadership, spur technological innovations, and create new economic opportunities. HEC R&D includes, but is not limited to, R&D of hardware (e.g., microarchitecture, memory subsystems, interconnect, packaging, I/O, and storage), software (e.g., operating systems, languages and compilers, development environment, algorithms), and system technology (e.g., system architecture, programming models) for high capability compute-intensive and data-intensive computing. HEC R&D includes fundamental research, applied R&D, technology development and demonstration, test and evaluation, technology transfer, and development of future workforce who will advance the field of HEC.
HEC also focuses on providing computation- and data-intensive high-capability computing infrastructure and application (HCIA) to support agency mission needs and diverse initiatives that advance U.S. priorities. HCIA includes computation- and data-intensive systems and applications, associated software, communications, storage, and data management infrastructure, and other resources needed to enable agencies and the wider HEC community to fully utilize and exploit the capabilities of these infrastructure.
HEC IWG coordinates programs, budgets, and policy recommendations and facilitates information sharing among agencies for EHCS and HCIA.

Federal High End Computing (HEC) Information Portal
This portal provides information about opportunities to engage in U.S. Federal government high performance computing activities, including supercomputer use, software access, research opportunities, and related events. HEC IWG (Interagency Working Group on High End Computing) agencies provided the information contained in this portal. HEC IWG agencies are involved in various Federal activities in the HEC area including R&D and providing infrastructure and application.
