Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability Webinar

January 6th, 2014 / in Uncategorized / by Ann Drobnis

nsf_logo_new_transparentThe National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a new solicitation for the Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program.  The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) 2012 White Paper “21st Century Computer Architecture” was a key driver for the development of this program.

The Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program aims to support groundbreaking research leading to a new era of parallel computing. Achieving the needed breakthroughs will require a collaborative effort among researchers representing all areas– from services and applications down to the micro-architecture– and will be built on new concepts, theories, and foundational principles. New approaches to achieve scalable performance and usability need new abstract models and algorithms, new programming models and languages, new hardware architectures, compilers, operating systems and run-time systems, and must exploit domain and application-specific knowledge. Research is also needed on energy efficiency, communication efficiency, and on enabling the division of effort between edge devices and clouds.

To support the solicitation, NSF will be holding a webinar on January 10, 2014 at 1:30 PM EST.  This webinar will cover the objectives of the XPS program, award types, and submission requirements.  It will conclude with a question and answer session.  Please register for the webinar here by 11:59 PM EST on January 9, 2013.

The full solicitation can be found here.
