May 30 -- The eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is accepting proposals for computationally intensive challenges facing industry that could be addressed with access to XSEDE expertise and resources.
The new XSEDE Industry Challenge program brings together researchers, scientists and engineers from academia and industry with interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in disciplines, and technical and professional skills. The program establishes a supportive environment for innovation and cooperative sharing of the research. XSEDE believes with inter-industry research there is potential for future economic and societal benefit within both the industrial and academic worlds.
Those eligible to submit proposals to the XSEDE Industry Challenge Program are faculty and researchers from accredited universities, industry researchers, and researchers from government laboratories. Proposals must describe a computationally challenging problem hindering industry today while demonstrating how the cooperative efforts of academia, industry and XSEDE, and potentially government research laboratories, will provide a framework for solving the problem.
Two-page letters of intent are due July 19, 2013 with feedback provided within three weeks. Full proposals are due Sept. 13, 2013. Proposals submitted in response to this program solicitation will be reviewed by a committee established by XSEDE who will strive to be able to tell applicants whether their proposals have been declined or recommended for support within one month of the submission deadline. All input and any questions should be submitted via email to IndustryChallenge@xsede.org.
The eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) accelerates open scientific discovery by enhancing the productivity of researchers, engineers, and scholars and making advanced digital resources easier to use. This virtual organization provides a dynamic distributed infrastructure, support services, and technical expertise that enable researchers, engineers, and scholars to address the most important and challenging problems facing the nation and world. XSEDE supports a growing collection of advanced computing, high-end visualization, data analysis, and other resources and services. XSEDE is funded by the National Science Foundation.
