Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
A by-chapter summary of this and other significant changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide.
One of the defining features of the new CISE organization is the introduction of clusters; cohesive units formed by combining several (partial) programs that share a common theme and/or have significant overlap. The TF cluster is broadly concerned with problems of information processing that fall within the extremes of purely theoretical studies and applications within disciplines. Research and education projects sponsored by the cluster bring advanced capabilities from computer science, scientific computing, communication theory, signal processing theory, numerical/geometrical/symbolic modeling/analysis and optimization theories and techniques, mathematics, and application areas to bear on fundamental problems throughout science and engineering.
The TF cluster encompasses the research areas covered by the former programs: communications research, numeric symbolic graphic computation, signal processing, and theory of computing. For the foreseeable future, TF will continue to encourage the submission of proposals from the research communities that were served formerly by these programs. The cluster also encourages investigators to include in their proposals innovative curricula or educational materials to help advance the training of new experts in the cognate areas served by TF.
