Microsoft Research Cambridge recently released a report entitled "Toward 2020 Science." This report is the result of a workshop that invited an international group of natural and computer scientists to put together a roadmap for science, and particularly computing, over the next sixteen years before 2020. The major focus is the claim that computer science will transform science, not just as a tool for doing "traditional" science, but as a technique for performing experiments and creating models. They have a downloadable PDF, but they will also mail you a copy of their very high-quality printed version, if you request it. I recommend reading it if you are interested in the intersection of science and computing.
