Advanced Computing Initiative
The Army Materiel Command is inviting grant, contract, and cooperative agreement applications for computer science research on areas of strategic importance to U.S. national security policy. Energy efficiency is now a first-class constraint in designing new supercomputers, and the challenge of rapidly failing system resilience is on the horizon. To provide reasonable performance across at least a small class of applications, future systems will need to be able to dynamically trade off energy efficiency, performance, and reliability. The ACI is inviting ideas for enabling these tradeoffs, and will support research in one or more of three categories: machine
environment, run-time environment, and programming environment.
