Campus Deadline:


External Deadline(s):

LOI (required): July 14, 2017

Full Proposal: November 20, 2017


Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 1 An organization may submit only one proposal but may be identified as sub-awardee on other proposals responding to this solicitation.

NSF invites proposals for the acquisition and deployment of a High Performance Computing (HPC) system, called the Phase 1 system, with the option of a possible future upgrade to a leadership-class computing facility. The Phase 1 system will serve two important and complementary purposes:
- It will serve as a robust, well-balanced, and forward-looking computational asset for a broad range of research topics for which advances in fundamental understanding require the most extreme computational and data analysis capabilities; and
- It will serve as an evaluation platform for testing and demonstrating the feasibility of an upgrade to a leadership-class facility five years following deployment.
