From The Business of Energy in U.S. Academic Research Computing
Notes, in progress
Why are we here? What would count as success?
- Funding agencies launching programs that emphasize scientific computing, software, and infrastructure;
- Lawmakers speaking favorably of academic computation activity;
- The US President setting agendas that will benefit, and benefit from, computation.
- Individual lawmakers becoming more receptive to overtures from CASC’s organizational members;
- Outreach products and the scientific outcomes they present becoming the subject of positive news coverage.
