About the series
The Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program (http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504842) aims to support groundbreaking research leading to a new era of parallel computing. Achieving the needed breakthroughs will require a collaborative effort among researchers representing all areas-- from services and applications down to the micro-architecture-- and will be built on new concepts, theories, and foundational principles. New approaches to achieve scalable performance and usability need new abstract models and algorithms, new programming models and languages, new hardware architectures, compilers, operating systems and run-time systems, and must exploit domain and application-specific knowledge. Research is also needed on energy efficiency, communication efficiency, and on enabling the division of effort between edge devices and clouds.
The webinar will cover the objectives of the XPS program, award types, and submission requirements. It will conclude with a question and answer session.
The Webinar will be held from 1:30pm to 2:30pm EST on Friday January 10, 2014. Questions about the solicitation can be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
