MICDE 2019 Catalyst Grants Informational Session
February 7, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Weiser Hall, Room 747
MICDE seeks proposals for innovative research projects in computational science that combine elements of mathematics, computer science, and cyberinfrastructure. Of interest is innovative computational research in any emerging area, including but not limited to
- Computational science approaches, algorithms, frameworks, etc.
- Emerging paradigms in computing (exascale computing, quantum computing, FPGA computing, etc.)
- Applications in emerging areas (neuroscience, ecology, evolutionary biology, human-made complex systems, mobility etc.)
- Extensions of traditional computational sciences to complex decision making (reinforcement learning, transfer learning, neuromorphic computing, etc.)
- Artificial Intelligence informing and informed by science
Generic big data problems that do not fundamentally advance computational science algorithms are not suitable for MICDE Catalyst Grants. Priority will be given to high-impact projects with potential to eventually attract external funding. MICDE expects to fund 3-4 one-year projects at up to $100,000 each.
In this informational session, MICDE officials will clarify the program’s intent, answer questions and facilitate team formation among attendees.
RSVP is appreciated, but not required. Lunch will be provided.
