NSF Solicits Application for Computing EquipmentOctober 16, 2006
An updated NSF program solicitation is now available for Scientific Computing Research Environments for the Mathematical Sciences (SCREMS)
The proposal deadline is the Fourth Thursday in January, annually
Scientific Computing Research Environments for the Mathematical Sciences(SCREMS) awards support computing environments dedicated to research in the mathematical sciences. Proposals may request support for the purchase of computing equipment and limited support for professional systems administrators or programmer personnel for research computing needs. These grants are intended to support research projects of high quality that require access to advanced computing resources. Requests for routine upgrades of standard desk-environment workstations or laptop computers are not appropriate for this program. Awards are made to provide support for specific research projects rather than to provide general computing capacity. Proposers are encouraged to include projects involving symbolic and algebraic computations, numerical computations and simulations, and graphical representations (visualization) in aid of the research.
