US government agencies recognize that predictive simulation has become increasingly powerful for advancing scientific and technological goals of society. A key reason is high-performance computing that allows more complete treatment of physics and uncertainty. There is great optimism about the potentially dramatic increases in power due to hyperparallel multicore computers, including acquisition and use of increasingly massive amounts of data. At the same time, our challenge is to develop the computational tools and to prepare students and the workforce to take advantage of these changes.
