Twenty-first century science and engineering (S&E) research continues to be transformed by the increasing availability and scales of computation and data, and national cyberinfrastructure (CI) ecosystem is a key catalyst for discovery and innovation. Consistent with the vision of National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) and the Strategic Computing research priority, the CI ecosystem is also playing a critical role in ensuring US leadership in S&E, economic competitiveness and national security. In this talk, I will present NSF’s vision for an integrated CI ecosystem. I will also highlight key priorities, programs and investment, and explore how they align with the objectives of NSCI.
