Computing and science in 2020

This is a follow-up to my post four days ago.

In the summer of 2005, an international expert group was brought together for a workshop to define and produce a new vision and roadmap of the evolution, challenges and potential of computer science and computing in scientific research in the next fifteen years.

The resulting document, Towards 2020 Science, sets out the challenges and opportunities arising from the increasing synthesis of computing and the sciences. [...]

From this page over at Microsoft Research, that hosts the report of this expert group. Nature has a set of articles devoted to 2020 -- Future of Computing, with quite a few articles; all of them are free.
