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
High End Computing (HEC) is a vital technology enabler for the U.S. government, academia, and industry, which enables and accelerates scientific discovery and product development, advances economic competitiveness and innovation, and helps to ensure national security.
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the Enabling R&D for High-Capability Computing Systems (EHCS) and High-capability Computing Systems Infrastructure and Applications (HCSIA) Program Component Areas.
HEC agencies coordinate Federal activities to provide large-scale, shared information technology infrastructure and applications that supports or enables high-capability computing R&D, including computation- and data-intensive systems and applications, and associated software, communications, storage, and data management infrastructure to meet Federal agency mission needs and support national competitiveness.
HEC also focuses on advancing the field of high-capability computing (HCS) through HCS R&D. This includes R&D in HCS hardware and its subcomponents, systems and application software, architecture, algorithms, and software development methods for extreme data- and compute-intensive workloads; and developing fundamentally new approaches to high-capability computing. HCS includes fundamental research, applied R&D, technology development and engineering, infrastructure and applications, demonstrations, testing and evaluation, technology transfer, and education and training. This includes supporting national initiatives and coordinating programs, budgets, and policy recommendations and facilitating information sharing among agencies for HCS R&D.
Example research areas of interest include hardware (e.g., microarchitecture, memory subsystems, interconnect, packaging, I/O, and storage), software (e.g., operating systems, languages and compilers, development environments, algorithms), and systems technology (e.g., system architecture, programming models).

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.
