Who May Serve as PI:                   Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as Principal Investigators (PIs) are invited to work with their organizations to develop an application. Individuals from underrepresented groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply.

Purpose:                                              The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in research applications to explore potentially high-impact approaches in the development and use of randomized algorithms for scientific computing and extreme-scale science.

The research and development of randomized algorithms will provide an important foundation for advances in AI, data science, and scientific computing. Fundamental properties of randomness can be harnessed to address massive data and post-Moore computational grand challenges. Research topic areas of interest include approaches for dealing with:

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.
