The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) of the National Science Foundation plans a limited number of awards for the support of computing environments for research in the mathematical sciences. SCREMS proposals are for computing environments dedicated to research in the mathematical sciences. Proposals may request support for the purchase of computing equipment and limited support for professional systems administrators or programmer personnel for research computing needs. These grants are intended to support research projects of high quality that require access to advanced computing resources. Requests for routine upgrades of standard desk-environment workstations or laptop computers are not appropriate for this program. Awards are made to provide support for specific research projects rather than to provide general computing capacity. Proposers are
encouraged to include projects involving symbolic and algebraic computations, numerical computations and simulations, and graphical representations (visualization) in aid of the research. Effective in FY 2005, and consistent with MRI, cost sharing is no longer required, and will not be considered by NSF in the evaluation of SCREMS proposals.
