DOE Distributed Resilient Systems

Please see the full solicitation for complete information about the funding opportunity. Below is a summary assembled by the Research & Innovation Office (RIO).

Program Summary

The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications focusing on basic research in computer science that explores innovative approaches to creating distributed resilient systems for science. Such systems might be national or global in scale, linking geographically-distributed computing systems and scientific instruments, and might involve a large number of edge devices or sensors, but regardless, must manage computation and data in scalable and fault-tolerant manner. Important research challenges involve techniques for advanced middleware and operating and runtime systems, with this FOA targeting two research areas: 1) scalable system modeling, and 2) adaptive management and partitioning of resources. Advances in these areas will contribute to scaling-up our increasingly complex and interconnected scientific enterprise.

See the full DOE solicitation for complete program details.
