-Questions addressed by the panel members include: What kinds of computational thinking abilities are required by scientists in industry?  What do scientists need to know about computer science?  What is the skill set needed and expected from the future scientists? How permeable are the boundaries of the disciplines, and do they require a broad interdisciplinary basis?  The panel will address the view that many scientists are now using computers to solve scientific problems and that understanding how computations are performed is becoming fundamental to scientific research.  +Questions addressed by the panel members include: What kinds of computational thinking abilities are required by scientists in industry?  What do scientists need to know about computer science?  What is the skill set needed and expected from the future scientists?

 +Now that we have seen what we’re all doing, what’s next?  How can we share our individual results with one another?  Can we narrow our individual efforts, but gain through collective efforts?  This session is a roundtable discussion to gather ideas on how to continue the collaboration begun at this workshop. 
 + 
 +Starter ideas include: creating a mailing list (“listserv”), newsgroup, RSS feed; creating/linking web pages, blog sites, or social networking groups; establishing a presence on SourceForge or other code sharing site; using a wiki to develop course materials, projects, problem sets, and exams; sharing classroom experiences (examples, techniques/technologies); collecting and reviewing text books, reference books, and other materials (“best practices”).
