Supports mathematical research in areas of science where computation plays a central and essential role, emphasizing analysis, development and implementation of numerical methods and algorithms, and symbolic methods.  The prominence of computation with analysis and ultimate implementation efficiency of the computational methods in the research is a hallmark of the program.  Proposals ranging from single-investigator projects that develop and analyze innovative computational methods to interdisciplinary team projects that not only create and analyze new mathematical and computational techniques but also use/implement them to model, study, and solve important application problems are strongly encouraged.


Principal Investigators should carefully read the program solicitation "Conferences and Workshops in the Mathematical Sciences" (see link below) to obtain important information regarding the substance of proposals for conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools, and similar activities.

To facilitate timely notification of the availability of support:

  • proposals for conferences, workshops, etc., to be held in the US must be submitted 8 months in advance of the conference date;
  • proposals to support group travel to meetings outside the US must be submitted 12 months in advance of the meeting date;
  • proposals for conferences, workshops, etc., whose budget request exceeds $50,000 must be submitted during the annual November 16 - December 01 submission window.
