The Office of Science comprises six distinct research programs, and four would see their funding grow by double-digit percentages. The biggest winners would be advanced scientific computing research, which supports DOE’s supercomputing efforts, and fusion energy sciences, which supports effort to harness nuclear fusion as a source of energy. The computing budget would soar 25%, to $605 million, and fusion would receive a 24% increase, to $410 million.”

Abstract: This talk gives an overview of the most recent research activities at LCPP, the Laboratory of Computational Plasma Physics at Illinois. The Laboratory develops theoretical and computational models for a variety of Plasma Physics problems ranging from fusion edge plasmas to industrial plasmas and nuclear forensics, utilizing advanced, predictive simulation capabilities on high-performance computing machines, and multi-physics multi-scale models. Five-minute snapshots from several active projects will be presented, highlighting collaboration opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.
