A funding opportunity notice from the NSF states: "Physics at the Information Frontier (PIF) includes support for data-enabled science, community research networks and new computational infrastructure, as well as for next-generation computing. It focuses on cyber-infrastructure for the disciplines supported by the Physics Division while encouraging broader impacts on other disciplines. The three sub areas of this project are: 1. Computational physics: This subarea 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. Priority will be given to proposals which: advance computational capabilities crossing intellectual boundaries in physics; result in dramatic new computational advances within a specific sub-area of physics; or provide generally useful software tools for the physics community; 2. Information intensive physics: This sub area 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. Priority will be given to proposals which: develop tools which can serve a broad community within physics or reach out to other communities in need of rapid, secure access to large data stores; or which bring dramatic new capabilities to a specific sub-area of physics; and 3. Quantum information and revolutionary computing: This sub area supports theoretical and experimental 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-based information, transmission and manipulation. Priority will be given to proposals which utilize the tools of modern physics to foster new approaches to our understanding of quantum computation, quantum cryptography and/or quantum communication."
