Description: The DOE SC programs in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) and Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) announce their interest in receiving applications from interdisciplinary teams to establish Partnerships under the SC-wide Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program in specific targeted topic areas that relate to the BES and ASCR missions. Targeted topics are described in the Supplementary Information section below. Applications and Pre-Applications that do not address one or more of these specific topics may be declined without review. This Announcement invites new research proposals for the SciDAC-5 Partnerships in BES that enable or accelerate scientific discovery employing DOE High-End/High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities, e.g., see For the purposes of this Announcement, the term “DOE HPC” has been expanded to include the high performance production computational systems at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), as well as those existing, or planned to be available by 2022, at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), or similar DOE computing facilities. ASCR expects that DOE HPC will include exascale machines now planned for these Facilities (Perlmutter, Aurora, Frontier) within the period covered by this Announcement, please consult the following websites for further information:,,
