The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Office of Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) is requesting Pre-Proposal Responses. Pre-proposals are requested from interested U.S. Ph.D-granting institutions to learn about the next ASC academic program which is a follow-on to the present ASC Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program (PSAAP). The three major focus areas of the new ASC Alliance program will be:
I. Predictive Science based on verification and validation and uncertainty quantification (V&V/UQ) for large-scale simulations;
II. Discipline-focused research needed to further predictive science and enabled by effective Exascale computing; and,
III. Developing and demonstrating technologies and methodologies to support effective Exascale computing in the context of science/engineering applications.
A description of the Pre-proposal requirements is attached to this announcement
Preproposal Due Date: 4 PM EDT, Monday July 25, 2011
