Evrard: The task of forward-modeling large-scale cosmic structure in the deeply non-linear regime — the essence of what traditionally has been called computational cosmology — is a formidable prospect that transcends individual observational surveys.  In this brief presentation, I will offer a few ideas for a future in which pan-chromatic synthetic skies are developed and shared collaboratively across projects, rather than siloed within them.
