ABSTRACT
Computing plays an indispensable role in scientific research.
Presently, researchers in science have different problems,
needs, and beliefs about computation than professional pro-
grammers. In order to accelerate the progress of science,
computer scientists must understand these problems, needs,
and beliefs. To this end, this paper presents a survey of
scientists from diverse disciplines, practicing computational
science at a doctoral-granting university with very high re-
search activity. The survey covers many things, among
them, prevalent programming practices within this scien-
tific community, the importance of computational power in
