The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MolSSI) is a nexus for science, education, and cooperation serving the worldwide community of computational
molecular scientists - a broad field including of biomolecular simulation,
quantum chemistry, and materials science. The Institute, which was recently
funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the White House’s National
Strategic Computing Initiative, will spur significant advances in software
infrastructure, education, standards, and best-practices that are needed to
enable the molecular science community to open new windows on the next
generation of scientific Grand Challenges, ranging from the simulation of
intrinsically disordered proteins associated with a range of diseases to the
design of new catalysts vital to the global chemical industry and climate
change. The MolSSI will enable the computational molecular science community to
work together to leverage its diverse capabilities that will reduce or
eliminate the gulf that currently delays by years the practical realization of
theoretical innovations. Ultimately, the Institute will enable computational
scientists to tackle problems that are orders of magnitude larger and more
complex than those currently within our grasp. This lecture will provide an
overview of the Institute’s structure, goals, and vision.
