Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


This solicitation seeks proposals to develop the future simulation and analysis tools that can use petascale computing to advance the frontiers of scientific and engineering research.   Proposals are sought from researchers aiming to capitalize on emerging petascale computing architectures, catalyzing potentially transformative research.  NSF's emphasis is on implementation and exploitation of forefront techniques.   Proposers must be prepared to demonstrate that they have a research problem that requires and can exploit petascale computing capabilities.  Proposals from or including junior researchers are encouraged as one of the goals of this solicitation is to build a community capable of using petascale computing.
