Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). NSF anticipates release of the PAPPG in the Fall of 2014. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.

SYNOPSIS

The NGS program fosters multidisciplinary group, and single investigator, software research. The overall thrust of NGS is research and development for new software technologies integrated across the systems architectural layers, and supporting the design and the operation cycle of applications, computing and communications systems, and delivering quality of service (QoS).

One component, Technology for Performance Engineered Systems (TPES), supports research for methods and tools leading to the development of performance frameworks for modeling, measurement, analysis, evaluation and prediction of performance of complex computing and communications systems, and of the applications executing on such systems. The second component, Complex Application Design and Support Systems (CADSS), supports research on novel software for the development and run-time support of complex applications executing on complex computing platforms; CADSS fostered technology breaks down traditional barriers in existing software components in the application development, support and runtime layers, and leverages TPES developed technology for delivering QoS.

It's expected that technology developed under TPES, when integrated into the design process, will lead to substantial decreases in the development time and cost of future advanced information systems, from the hardware components to the applications executing on such platforms. In addition such capabilities, when integrated into the operational process of these systems, as envisioned with CADSS, will lower the cost of their management, optimize their performance, and ensure QoS.

The technologies developed will be validated with demonstrations on important national interest applications. Multidisciplinary teams will involve collaboration among researchers in several areas in computer sciences and application developers.
