This program provides support for physics proposals in three subareas: computational physics, information intensive physics, and quantum information and revolutionary computing. Computational physics focuses on computational problems in physics requiring significant long-term code development, and/or medium to large collaboratories involving physicists or physicists interacting with applied mathematicians and computer scientists. Information intensive physics seeks proposals to develop rapid, secure and efficient access to physics data stores rising from Petabytes (today) to Exabytes (in 10 years) via heterogeneous and distributed computing resources and networks of varying capability and reliability and to develop internally consistent approaches to the usage of common resources required in the multiple collaborations and serving virtual science organizations on a global scale. Quantum information and revolutionary computing supports proposals that explore applications of quantum mechanics to new computing paradigms for physics or that foster interactions between the physical, mathematical and computer scientists which push the frontiers of quantum information science. Proposals may include an educational component.
