The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications focusing on basic research in computer science that explores innovative approaches to creating distributed resilient systems for science. Such systems might be national or global in scale, linking geographically-distributed computing systems and scientific instruments, and might involve a large number of edge devices or sensors, but regardless, they must manage computation and data in a scalable and fault-tolerant manner. Important research challenges involve techniques for advanced middleware and operating and runtime systems, with this FOA targeting two research areas: 1) scalable system modeling and 2) adaptive management and partitioning of resources. Advances in these areas will contribute to scaling up our increasingly complex and interconnected scientific enterprise.

For this limited submission opportunity, the office of the VCR is soliciting white papers. White paper guidelines are available at
