DOE: EXPRESS: 2023 Exploratory Research for Extreme Scale Science DE-FOA-0002950

The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in basic research to explore potentially high-impact approaches in scientific computing and extreme-scale science.

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.

This competition limits required pre-applications from USC (as lead organization) to four.

Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstracta and a 3 page CV such as the SCiENcv via email to Richard White ( by February 27, 2023.. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

The pre-application deadline to DOE is March 22, 2023, with invited full applications due April 19, 2023.
