CAMPA

Consortium for Advanced Modeling of Particle Accelerators (CAMPA)

The Consortium for Advanced Modeling of Particle Accelerators (CAMPA), currently spanning three major U.S. national laboratories (LBNL, SLAC, FNAL), coordinates and integrates the development, maintenance, distribution and support of state-of-the-art accelerator computer codes. Its long-term objective is to create a national consortium composed of a cohesive team of accelerator physicists, computational scientists and applied mathematicians from National Laboratories and universities to advance accelerator science through advanced computation, in support of the Department of Energy’s missions.

Goals:

  • Push the frontier of accelerator science through advanced simulation and modeling and push the computing frontier in accelerator science through algorithmic advances;
  • Provide the scientific community with a comprehensive and integrated toolset of state-of-the-art simulation codes for multi-scale, multi-physics accelerator modeling, in support of the mission of the Office of Science within the Department of Energy (DOE);
  • Develop and maintain the codes on DOE’s supercomputing facilities; distribute and support codes for installation on smaller scale clusters, desktops or laptops;
  • Support users;
  • Use the codes as educational tools to train students and young researchers on the science and the modeling of accelerators;
  • Promote collaboration and re-use of accelerator simulation codes and data through common interfaces, data standards, and integrated visualization and analysis capabilities.

Goals within the HEP-FCE:

  • Topical point of contact, facilitator, and moderator for particle accelerator discussions and activities.
