Michigan University MICDE awards four Catalyst Grants for computational science projects

5 Apr 2017 Ann Arbor - The Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering has awarded its first round of Catalyst Grants, providing $75,000 each to four innovative projects in computational science. The proposals were judged on novelty, likelihood of success, potential for external funding, and potential to leverage ARC's existing computing resources.

The funded projects are:

  • From Spiking Patterns to Memory formation: Tools for Analysis and Modeling of Network-wide Cognitive Dynamics of the Brain;
  • Integral Equation Based Methods for Scientific Computing;
  • Computational Energy Systems;
  • Black Swans, Dragon Kings, and the Science of Rare Events: Problems for the Exascale Era and Beyond.
