Abstract : This report details biomedical computing requirements for high productivity computing systems for DARPA's High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS) program. The goal of the project was to determine biomedical computing requirements in order to define the size and nature of the demand in this research field; provide an assessment of the impact HPCS technologies can have on important biomedical problems and highlight HPCS R&D areas critical to advances in biomedical computing. The study team used multiple techniques to gather, assimilate and validate biomedical computing requirements including: a review of biomedical computing needs in the literature, interviews with government and industry researchers, and a workshop to identify software environment requirements.
