NSF: Towards a Leadership-Class Computing Facility - Phase 1 NSF 17-558
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.
USC may only submit ONE proposal in response to this solicitation. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (
NSF indicates that a Letter of Intent by July 14, 2017 and a full proposal is due by November 20, 2017. For more information: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17558/nsf17558.htm
