The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications from large multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional teams (requesting support of more than $3 million per year) for the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC)
The ASCR program’s mission (https://science.osti.gov/ascr and https://science.osti.gov/ascr/Community-Resources/Program-Documents) is to advance applied mathematics and computer science; deliver the most sophisticated computational scientific applications in partnership with disciplinary science; advance computing and networking capabilities; and develop future generations of computing hardware and software tools for science and engineering, in partnership with the research community.
A major objective of the ASCR basic research portfolio is to enable DOE-supported science communities to take full advantage of the current and emerging high-performance computing (HPC) systems.
ASCR achieves this goal through the SciDAC program (https://www.scidac.gov).The end product of SciDAC is groundbreaking science through the use of HPC.
Since its inception in 2001, the SciDAC program has been recognized as a leader in enabling scientific discoveries that would not have been possible without the deep collaborations between discipline scientists, applied mathematicians, and computer scientists.
This FOA announces the fourth re-competition of the SciDAC (SciDAC-5) Institutes.
The mission of the SciDAC-5 Institutes is to provide intellectual resources in applied mathematics and computer science, expertise in algorithms and methods, and scientific software tools to advance scientific discovery, for the public benefit, in areas of strategic importance to SC and DOE.
