SYNOPSIS

Supports research on perception, action and cognition. Emphasis is on research strongly grounded in theory. Central research topics for consideration by the Perception, Action, and Cognition panel include vision, audition, haptics, attention, memory, reasoning, written and spoken discourse, and motor control. The program encompasses a wide range of theoretical perspectives, such as symbolic computation, connectionism, ecological, nonlinear dynamics, and complex systems, and a variety of methodologies including both experimental studies and modeling. The PAC program is open to co-review of proposals submitted to other programs (e.g., Linguistics, Developmental and Learning Sciences, Cognitive Neuroscience, etc). Proposals may involve clinical populations, animals, or computational modeling only if the work has direct impact on basic issues of human perception, action, or cognition.

Within one week of receipt of the proposal number from FastLane, each PI must send the following two documents via email to sbe-pac@nsf.gov. The subject heading of the email should note the proposal number and the Principal Investigator. Attach the following documents prepared on the following templates.

  1. An Excel spreadsheet with two worksheet pages that will be used by NSF to check for conflicts of interest in assembling the review community.  (Excel Template for PAC).
  2. A single PowerPoint slide with (a) name and affiliation of all senior personnel, (b) title of your proposal, and (c) a very brief (1-3 sentences at most) summary of the main hypotheses and methods. The slide may only include graphs, images, or other illustrations if they appear in the proposal. You must use the template (PowerPoint Template for PAC) and name the file with the PI's last name followed by the seven digit proposal number (e.g., Smith 127999). This will be used during review panel discussions.

Remember to email these two documents to: sbe-pac@nsf.gov; do not use FastLane.
