The purpose of this NSF Leadership-Class System Acquisition - Creating a Petascale Computing Environment for Science and Engineering solicitation is to generate proposals from organizations or groups of organizations that are committed to the acquisition, deployment and subsequent operation of a single, petascale high performance computing (HPC) system designed to advance research on the most challenging science and engineering problems. Through a related competition, described in NSF 05-625, mid-range HPC systems, that may be optimized for particular classes of science and engineering research problems, will be funded. Together these competitions will provide a portfolio of HPC resources that is balanced in terms of architecture and capability.

A competitive, petascale HPC system will:

  • enable researchers to work on a range of computationally-challenging science and engineering applications at the frontiers of research;
  • incorporate reliable, robust system software essential to optimal sustained performance;
  • provide a high degree of stability and usability; and
  • function as a community-driven resource that actively engages the research and education communities in petascale science and engineering.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, July 14, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include a summary of the proposed project.


Up to $200 million over four years

MU Deadline: 4:00 p.m., Friday, July 14, 2006 (letter of intent)
Sponsor Deadline:

September 8, 2006 (preliminary proposal, required)
February 2, 2007 (full proposals, by invitation)
