Recognizing a tremendous potential in the area of computational science well beyond what a single department, college, or institute could tackle, in 2007 Penn State established an Institute for Computational Science funded through the OSVPR and contributions from many of the colleges. The ICS was visualized as a net overarching the major research Institutes with arms to all the colleges. While the initials have stayed the same the unit has recently been renamed the Institute for CyberScience. The mission of ICS@PSU is to enhance Penn State's national and international presence and stature in computational cyberscience, by growing its foundational core and advancing its frontiers in Energy and the Environment, Life Sciences, Materials, and Social Sciences. ICS@PSU will promote this enterprise by developing core initiatives involving complex networks, metamodels, and cyberdiscovery systems, as well as frontier initiatives that will couple the core with strategic issue-centric thrusts. The expectation is that this Institute will succeed both in facilitating research across a broad spectrum and in securing significant external resources for cyberscience-related research. Such success will lead to continued, and possibly, enhanced support for ICS.
