From August 6-8, 2019, NOAA hosted the Earth Prediction Innovation Center (EPIC) Community Workshop in Boulder, CO. The purpose of this workshop was to gain insight from a diverse group of partners, high-performance computing experts, and the broader weather community (i.e. academia and private industry) in the planning, development, and strategic vision for the EPIC.

EPIC Community Workshop Summary 2019
A workshop was held in Boulder, CO from March 6 – 7, 2019 to begin the EPIC project planning within NOAA. Twenty NOAA federal employees with more than 400 combined years of experience in numerical modeling and/or the transition of research into operations participated. From this collaboration, the EPIC Vision Paper is the foundation and guide to initial development of EPIC.
The Earth Prediction Innovation Center (EPIC) will accelerate community-developed scientific and technological advancements into the operational applications for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) by supporting a Unified Forecast System (UFS) community model. NOAA is working closely with entities in the weather enterprise (public, private, and academic) to inform the planning, development, and strategy for EPIC. To engage the community and inform the next-steps for the EPIC Program, NOAA’s Weather Program Office (WPO) hosted the EPIC Community Workshop at the University of Colorado, Boulder University Memorial Center from August 6-8, 2019. The objectives of the workshop were to co-create a vision for EPIC to accelerate the transition of research to operations; share the current status and future of community-based Earth System Modeling; understand NOAA’s developmental process of EPIC and create shared next steps in the development of EPIC; and identify emerging technologies for Earth System Modeling.
