Thus we can now address some of the outstanding issues, to
which conventional approaches have proven inadequate, and
we can formulate and investigate new questions which
would not even be asked in the absence of our current and
expected future computational tools and methods.
Computational Science has moved to
the leading edge of science and engineering, and it is likely to
remain there for a long time to come.
As its supporting computing and communications technologies
pervade our society, computational science will
increasingly be put to many uses, ranging from
entertaining videogames running on VLSI chips to novel
medical imaging equipment.
