Proposals will be double-blind peer reviewed by domain experts from other 4-year universities and scored based on scientific merit, capacity building, and strategic excellence. We will be looking for proposals that fulfill the following three key goals:
- Relate to modeling and simulation, big data, machine learning, and/or analytics
- Will result in high-impact, peer-reviewed publications
- Can “seed” larger, long-term extramural funding
There are eight priority areas for funding, aligned with the research areas of the SimCenter: Advanced Modeling & Simulation, Cybersecurity & Cyber-physical Systems, Digital Twins, Energy, Environment, Extreme Systems, Health & Biological Systems, High-Performance Computing & Algorithms. Projects outside these areas are eligible for funding, provided they are oriented toward the key goals listed above. Proposals that leverage community assets/partners are strongly encouraged.
Additionally, projects related to Smart Cities & Urban Dynamics may be proposed if they align with the mission of the Center for Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP). PIs interested in this area should seek written approval from the CUIP director, Dr. Mina Sartipi ([email protected]). Dr. Sartipi will not prevent a PI from submitting a proposal that she determines has poor fit with CUIP; instead, she will suggest another appropriate area of application.
UTC professors at all tenured and tenure-earning ranks may apply as PIs and co-PIs. The maximum individual award amount is $100,000. The start date for all projects will be July 1, 2021. The budget period will be 12 months (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022).
