The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Office of Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) will hold a Pre-Proposal Conference on May 10-11, 2011 at the DFW Airport Marriott. The conference is for 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) (see http://www.sandia.gov/NNSA/ASC/univ/psaap.html). The three major focus areas of the new ASC Alliance program will be:
I. Development and demonstration of technologies and methodologies to support effective Exascale computing in the context of science/engineering applications;
II. Predictive Science based on verification and validation and uncertainty quantification (V&V/UQ) for large-scale simulations; and,
III. Discipline-focused research needed both to further predictive science and enable Exascale computing.
Dates: May 10-11, 2011
The meeting will start at 8:30 a.m. on May 10th and will conclude at noon on May 11, 2011. NNSA ASC program managers will present the new scope and requirements of the next ASC Alliance program, lay out the technical areas of interest that ASC looks to partner with the academia, and receive oral comments and feedback from the audience on the upcoming Request for Information (RFI).
