Purpose:                                              The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in funding research and development projects to create an advanced Integrated Computational and Data Infrastructure (ICDI) program. This FOA is composed of two topics.

Topic A “Experimental/Computational/Computer Science collaborations” addresses the challenge of creating collaborative teams of scientists to accelerate science discoveries supported by the SC programs. Applications to this topic must be submitted by multi-investigator teams.

Topic B: “Intelligent Distributed Infrastructure Simulation Capabilities” addresses the challenge of modeling, simulating, and validating the performance of geographically distributed science infrastructures. Both single and multiple investigator applications may be submitted.

Budgetary Requirements:              Cost sharing for basic and fundamental research is not required pursuant to an exclusion from the requirements of Section 988 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
