DOE plan for the U.S. Plasma Science Community Participation in ITER. Specifically, the committee suggested
that "enabling U.S. ability to contribute substantially to ITER, and maximizing U.S. ability to act on the results
produced by ITER, in order to fully reap the enormous scientific and technological reward possible as a result of
U.S. involvement in the project" should be a key goal underpinning the U.S. participation.
The FSP directly supports the efforts of the FES to develop integrated simulation capabilities to further its
mission and support its strategic goal to "advance the fundamental science of magnetically confined plasmas to
develop the predictive capability needed for a sustainable fusion energy source."

* The DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research recognizes the synergistic advantages
available to it in achieving its stated goals by joining FES in supporting the efforts of the FSP.
The work of the FSP does not solely reside within the purview of either program office, but at the intersection of
interests of both organizations.
Success of the FSP depends critically on leveraging expertise from within the broader advanced simulation
community. Building on the foundations established at the FSP community planning workshop in San Diego (Feb.
2011), the FSP Plan features ASCR research contributions that can both accelerate progress in FES as well as
advance the ASCR research mission (see Figure 4). Research from within the ASCR community will be required in
seven general areas:
(i) Scalable Solvers - solver techniques, especially for highly parallel or multithreaded hardware;
(ii) Time Integration - improved time integration techniques, especially for coupled partial differential
(iii) Formulation - Innovative formulation of continuous and discrete models
(iv) Multi-scale/physics - advanced methods for multi-scale and multi-physics coupling;
(v) Data/Meshing - advanced methods for more efficient data management/analysis, including
visualization and meshing;
(vi) Frameworks - framework design, including the software challenges of componentization and
coupling on HPC systems; and
Here’s what’s next.
