Just working on the project was fun enough; we didn’t do it just for the award. Of course, it was a great experience to see how this whole SC Conference is set up and how it works. 77 Can you tell me how this particular project got started? Omar and Mike got together and submitted a grant proposal to the National Science Foundation. In 2006, when I got to Austin, this whole corner of the building was basically empty. I showed up in May, Lucas in August, and Georg in September. That was basically the core of the group for the next couple of years.

Then we can dream about outstanding research, and Simula has now been through five international assessments – all with top marks – so there must be something in it. To do that we must recruit people who can maintain this level and who possess something extraordinary. The extraordinary lies in this drive. When we find such people they always change the way we operate. ” 77 What would you say lies at the heart of your own research? What do you want to contribute to the world? “My research’s major contribution has been to make it easier to create a laboratory in the computer, where we can experiment with the world.

Right now AMR is still an exception; most people who want to run a simulation start out on a regular grid. It would be nice if in the future AMR were a default that everyone had already which doesn’t cost very much. 77 Why is AMR not yet a default method? Are there some technical difficulties in implementing it? In parallel computation it was not clear that it would ever work. Most people, up to a couple years ago, were quite sceptical. Now there are a couple other approaches that are also scaling fairly reasonably.
