The DMSC has been a division of ESS Science Directorate since late 2013 and its mission is to use the techniques and methods of scientific computing to facilitate, enable and advance the scientific research to be carried out on the ESS neutron beam instruments. The scope of DMSC's work ranges from instrument control and data acquisition software to data visualization, analysis, modelling and simulation. In order to do this, DMSC is structured into 5 groups:
- Data Systems and Technologies
- Data Management
- Instrument Data
- Data Analysis and Modelling
- Scientific Coordination and User Office software
along with the Project Coordination and Administration team.
The main offices of DMSC are currently located at Universitetsparken 1 in Copenhagen. A full listing of DMSC staff can be found here.
