A.40, Computational Modeling Algorithms And Cyberinfrastructure (CMAC).
This amendment provides the final text and proposal due date for Appendix A.40, Computational Modeling Algorithms And Cyberinfrastructure (CMAC).
This program element provides research and development opportunities for new or improved computational modeling algorithms; the exploitation of new computing, storage, and networking architectures, the development of programming and analysis environment, interfaces between observational data and models; large scale observational input data and model output data management, and the adoption of rigorous software engineering standards, practice, and tools.
This program is also concerned about the interdisciplinary workforce development, especially at the interface between Earth, computing and computational sciences, and software engineering. Funding will be provided to develop an experimental summer education program to supplement the higher education programs at research universities. The intention is not to make environmental scientists experts in computational science or software engineering, but to increase the awareness and knowledge in these disciplines.
Notices of Intent to propose are due February 3, 2012, and proposals are due no later than March 9, 2012.
On or about December 19, 2011, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2011″ (NNH11ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH11ZDA001N”).
