Aug. 18, 2022 — In a letter, Margaret Martonosi, Assistant Director, Computer and Information Science and Engineering, National Science Foundation, and Manish Parashar, Office Director, Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, announce the availability of advanced research computing resources to support monkeypox research. The letter is included in full below.
This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) seeks to enhance and accelerate research intended to better understand the spread of monkeypox virus; to inform and educate about the science of virus transmission and prevention; and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge.
Through this DCL, the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) within the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is promoting the availability of advanced research computing resources, networks, data resources, and research user support services of the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem of Services and Support (ACCESS) program.
Monkeypox researchers nationwide are invited to make urgent requests for use of NSF-funded advanced computing resources via the ACCESS allocations process. Researchers developing proposals are also invited to engage ACCESS support services, which match researchers with cyberinfrastructure experts from the national Computational Science and Support Network to support the use of these computational resources.
NSF solicitations can be identified through searches of existing funding opportunities.
Questions about this DCL should be addressed to Tom Gulbransen, CISE/OAC, ACCESS Program Officer, 703-292-4211, [email protected].
