2019 Competition (Funding for FY2020)

CEACSE Funding Opportunity Overview

The Center of Excellence in Applied Computational Science and Engineering (CEACSE) is issuing a call for research proposals for FY 2020. The primary goal of this program is to enable strategic development of new capabilities and extramural projects in the area of Computational Sciences.

The full application deadline is October 1, 2018, at 5pm Eastern Time. All submissions will be electronic. Application materials are below.





Proposals will be double-blind peer reviewed by external panels of domain experts and scored based on scientific merit, capacity building, and strategic excellence. We will be looking for proposals that fulfill the following three key goals:

  1. Relate to modeling and simulation, big data, and/or analytics
  2. Will result in high-impact, peer-reviewed publications
  3. Can “seed” larger, long-term extramural funding

There are five priority areas for funding, aligned with the research areas of the SimCenter:

  1. Aerospace & Defense Simulation
  2. Cybersecurity & Cyber-physical Systems
  3. Energy & the Environment
  4. Health & Biological Systems
  5. High Performance Computing

Proposed projects in the area of Smart Cities & Urban Dynamics must align with the mission of the Center for Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP), which branched from the SimCenter in June 2018. Any PI who would like to submit to this area should first contact the director of the CUIP, Dr. Mina Sartipi (mina-sartipi@utc.edu), to discuss the fit of the potential research.

Professors at all tenured and tenure-earning ranks may apply as PI’s and co-PIs. The maximum individual award amount is $100,000. The start date for all projects will be July 1, 2019. The budget period will be 12 months (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020).
