2023 Exploratory Research for Extreme-Scale Science Funding Opportunity

Feb. 2, 2023 — The US Department of Energy’s Office of Science today announced funding for basic research to explore potentially high-impact approaches in scientific computing and extreme-scale science. The total estimated funding is $10 million.

The deadline for required Pre-applications is March 8, 2023 at 5:00pm ET, and the deadline for applications is April 19, 2023 at 11:59pm ET.

Extreme-scale science recognizes that disruptive technology changes are occurring across science applications, algorithms, computer architectures and ecosystems. Recent reports point to emerging trends and advances in high-end computing, massive datasets, scientific machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) on increasingly heterogeneous architectures, including neuromorphic and quantum systems.

Significant innovation will be required in the development of effective paradigms and approaches for realizing the full potential of scientific computing from emerging technologies. Proposed research should not focus strictly on a specific science use case, but rather on creating the body of knowledge and understanding that will inform future advances in extreme-scale science. Consequently, the funding from this FOA is not intended to incrementally extend current research in the area of ​​the proposed project. It is expected that the proposed projects will significantly benefit from the exploration of innovative ideas or from the development of unconventional approaches.
