NSF Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program

The deadline for the NSF Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program is February 20, 2013.  This program offers grants of up to $750,000 to “support groundbreaking research leading to a new era of parallel computing.”  One of the focus areas is “Foundational Principles,” in which research “should engender a paradigm shift in the ways in which one conceives, develops, analyzes, and uses parallel algorithms, languages, and concurrency.”

Each proposal is required to have “two or more PIs providing different and distinct expertise relevant to the program’s focus areas”, and in particular the program welcomes collaborations between theorists and researchers in other areas of computer science.
