DE-FOA-0001912Computational Chemical Sciences Research5/16/2018 05:00 PM ET6/18/2018 05:00 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The DOE SC program in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announces its interest in receiving applications from single principal investigators (PIs), small groups (2-3 PIs), and centers (integrated multidisciplinary teams typically from multiple institutions) in Computational Chemical Sciences (CCS). CCS will support efforts to develop validated, public access codes and databases, and research to develop new approaches to enhance the use of large data sets for deriving new fundamental knowledge from calculations and advanced characterization of chemical systems. CCS will continue to support the DOE Exascale Computing Initiative (ECI), which was announced in September 2013. The ECI aims to accelerate the research and development needed to overcome key exascale challenges and maximize benefits of high-performance computing. This FOA continues the BES commitment to ECI by developing open source codes that can take full advantage of today’s petascale and future exascale leadership computing facilities.

DE-FOA-00019002018 MATHEMATICAL MULTIFACETED INTEGRATED CAPABILITY CENTERS (MMICCS)4/30/2018 05:00 PM ET5/23/2018 05:00 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) of the SC, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby invites applications for basic research that address fundamental challenges within DOE’s mission areas of energy, environment and security, and from a perspective that requires new integrated efforts across multiple mathematical, statistical and computational disciplines. This solicitation is for new Mathematical Multifaceted Integrated Capability Centers (MMICCs) to enable greatly enhanced scientific discovery, design, optimization or decision-support capabilities for the increasingly complex systems, processes, and problems that arise in science and energy research. Proposed research tightly focused on the solution of a particular science or engineering problem are outside the scope of this solicitation. These MMICCs will enable applied mathematics researchers to work together in large, collaborative teams to develop the mathematics needed to address significant scientific computing research challenges. The MMICCs allow researchers to take a broader view of the problem as a whole, and devise solution strategies that attack the problem in its entirety by building fundamental, multidisciplinary mathematical capabilities and tools cognizant of both existing and emerging computing paradigms. The MMICCs teams will have the flexibility and technical expertise to consider all aspects of the problem-solving process simultaneously - ranging from the mathematical formulation to the development, analysis, integration of appropriate models and methods, and demonstration of results and capabilities.

DE-FOA-0001895Quantum Testbed Pathfinder4/16/2018 05:00 PM ET5/14/2018 05:00 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) announces its interest in receiving applications to explore of the suitability of various implementations of quantum computing hardware for science applications. This foundational research will facilitate the development of device architectures well-suited for scientific applications of quantum computing and improve our understanding of the advantages and limitations of various approaches to quantum computing for science applications. The purpose of this announcement is to invite applications for foundational research in the following two areas: 1. Exploring the relationship between device architecture and application performance 2. Developing meaningful metrics for evaluating the suitability of quantum computing hardware for science applications Applications may address one or both of these themes. Proposed research should focus on devices that are already available or that become available during the term of the award rather than large-scale, high-fidelity, fault-tolerant machines. Funded teams will be expected to collaborate externally with researchers working to develop applications and algorithms that can expand the frontiers of scientific discovery. Funded teams will also be expected to participate in community engagement activities that support the growth of an active, integrated research community committed to the common goal of developing quantum computing resources for advancing scientific discovery. Topics that are out of scope include: development and optimization of quantum algorithms; development of new candidate qubit systems; schemes based on qubits that have not yet demonstrated high-fidelity gates; schemes to improve the performance and functionality of qubits; quantum transduction; quantum communication, networking, and key distribution; cryptography and cryptanalysis; and logical qubits beyond considerations given to scaling to ~10 qubit devices.
