Abstract : This document summarizes a symposium whose purpose was to use more fully the talents of the alumni of the Defense Science Study Group (DSSG) to help ensure that DoD was benefiting to the fullest extent possible from the use of advanced computational methods in academic research. The participants were the alumni of the DSSG, other key academics, and members of the DoD and DOE. The alumni and other academics presented briefings on advanced and innovative ways that computers are being used in academic research, while the members of DoD and DOE presented briefings on their related research. The participants believe that the DoD should continue to reach out to the commercial world and to academia for expertise that could aid the DoD in finding the best ways to implement the use of parallel computing for applications related to scientific and engineering research. They agreed that new techniques of visualizing the results of many of the various applications discussed are needed. The document should help the DoD in continuing Its work with the commercial world and academia.
