The next set of advances in astronomy will require understanding complex multi-scale physics and large astronomical datasets. CCA’s mission is to develop the computational tools needed for these calculations, simulations and analyses. CCA will also hold conferences and meetings and serve as a focal point for computational astronomy around the world.
CCB’s mission is to create new computational frameworks that will enable scientists to analyze the large and complex data sets that are being generated by new experimental technologies.
SCC’s mission is to develop and deploy the computing infrastructure – including new computational and statistical methods and storage and data handling system support — necessary for carrying out the research missions of CCA and CCB.
