The Data Science at Scale Summer School is funded through programmatic and outside funding sources including:


  • Department of Energy Office of Science projects such as the Exascale Computing Project
  • Los Alamos Laboratory Directed Research & Development (LDRD)  projects

Established in 1995, the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program supports the U.S. Defense Programs’ shift in emphasis from test-based confidence to simulation-based confidence. Under ASC, computer simulation capabilities are developed to analyze and predict the performance, safety, and reliability of nuclear weapons and to certify their functionality.

The school receives a portion of its funding through the Computational Systems & Software Environment (CSSE) Program.  The program is managed by Mike Lang.
