The NSF's five-year goal for high-performance computing (HPC) is to enable petascale science and engineering through the deployment and support of a world-class HPC environment comprising the most capable combination of HPC assets available to the academic community. By the year 2010, the petascale HPC environment will enable investigations of computationally challenging problems that require computing systems capable of delivering sustained performance approaching 1015 floating point operations per second (petaflops) on real applications, that consume large amounts of memory, and/or that work with very large data sets. Among other things, researchers will be able to perform simulations that are intrinsically multi-scale or that involve the simultaneous interaction of multiple processes.

The purpose of this solicitation is to generate proposals from resource provider organizations who are committed to the acquisition and deployment of balanced HPC systems that will contribute to the development of the HPC environment described above. In future competitions, these systems will be upgraded or complemented by the acquisition of additional HPC systems that may be optimized for particular classes of science and engineering research problems. However, this competition emphasizes the provision of one or two well-balanced systems that deliver high levels of performance for many different types of science and engineering applications.

Competitive HPC systems will

  • enable researchers to work on a range of computationally-challenging science and engineering applications;
  • incorporate reliable, robust system software essential to optimal sustained performance; and
  • provide a high degree of stability and usability.

Because MU is limited to two applications for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, June 2, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 2-page summary of the proposed project.

Amount:

A total of approximately $30 million is available for one to two awards in FY 2006.

MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, June 2, 2006 (letter of intent)
Sponsor Deadline:

November 30, 2006
