Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDac): High Energy Physics


Wednesday, January 07, 2015


The Office of High Energy Physics (HEP) and the Office
of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) of
the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby announce their interest in
receiving peer reviewable proposals from interdisciplinary multi-institutional teams to the
Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program, for Scientific
Computation Application Partnerships (hereafter, Partnerships) in the area of computational high
energy physics. Applications should propose two-year research plans and demonstrate how the
proposed research will advance the HEP mission by fully
exploiting leadership class computing resources (by which we mean those existing at or planned
in the next five years for the Oak Ridge and Argonne Leadership Computing Facilities, or the
high performance production computational systems at the National Energy Research Scientific
Computing Center, or similar computing facilities, see
Proposals should focus on computational advances for the HEP Science drivers and be aligned with
2014 P5 priorities. Proposals from established areas for use of supercomputers such as
Computational Cosmology, Lattice Gauge Theory, and Accelerator Modeling and Simulation
will be considered along with those from emerging HPC users. Innovative research for HEP data 
analysis and simulation tools and HEP crosscut initiatives are included in the scope of this
Funding Opportunity Announcement. Proposals must demonstrate viable partnerships with
ASCR SciDAC Institutes and
propose ways to contribute to cross cut computational needs of the HEP community.
Partnerships are encouraged to request joint funding from HEP and ASCR Offices under this
FOA by stating the requested funding amounts from HEP and ASCR, respectively, and
supporting their proposed funding distribution in the budget justification (see Management
Plan). All proposers should provide clear plans for engagement with the ASCR SciDAC
Institutes as applicable and propose contributions to HEP cross cut computing. Additional
details and guidelines are provided below
