Important Information for Proposers

ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The Advanced Computational Reseach (ACR) program focuses on the research and enabling technologies needed to advance the state of the art in high-end computing and computational science, and bring advanced computational capabilities to bear on fundamental science and engineering problems. Current focus areas include software systems and tools, visualization and data handling, and scalable algorithms. ACR also supports work on multidisciplinary analysis and design, heterogeneous computing, web-based meta-computing, computational steering and remote collaboration on high performance computing applications. An area of growing interest is algorithm scalabilty addressing such issues as latency-tolerant algorithms, and research into means to handle complex multi-level memory hierarchies.

The current Program Director for ACR is Xiaodong Zhang.  His home institution is the College of William and Mary, where he is a professor of computer science.  His area of expertise is high performance computing and systems, with emphasis on memory systems and distributed computing. While at NSF, however, he intends to support excellent research in all areas as described above.
