The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF) released a solicitation for proposals for the new Cluster Exploratory (CluE) initiative. The CluE program was announced in February as a part of a relationship between Google, IBM and NSF. NSF hopes this initiative will help lead to innovations in the field of data-intensive computing, as well as serve as an example for future collaborations between the private sector and the academic computing research community.
…Wing noted that the initiative is looking for proposals that focus on data-intensive applications and “not cluster computing per se. We are not looking for scientific applications that are based primarily on solving massive numbers of partial differential equations since high-end computing resources are available for such research already.”
