Project Description

The IDEAS Project is intent on improving scientific productivity by qualitatively changing scientific software developer productivity, enabling a fundamentally different attitude to creating and supporting computational science and engineering (CSE) applications.

We are working with the broader community on creating an extreme-scale scientific software development ecosystem, including a collection of best practices, processes, and tools; and substantial outreach mechanisms for promoting and disseminating productivity improvements. We intend to improve CSE productivity by enabling better, faster and cheaper CSE application capabilities for extreme-scale computing.

The IDEAS project is co-led by Mike Heroux (SNL) and Lois Curfman McInnes (ANL) and includes participation from ANL, LANL, LBNL, LLNL, ORNL, SNL, and U.Oregon.
