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.

Full Proposal Window:  November 25, 2014 - December 9, 2014

November 25 - December 9, Annually Thereafter

The CDS&E-MSS program accepts proposals that confront and embrace the
host of mathematical and statistical challenges presented to the
scientific and engineering communities by the ever-expanding role of
computational modeling and simulation on the one hand, and the explosion
in production of digital and observational data on the other. The goal
of the program is to promote the creation and development of the next
generation of mathematical and statistical theories and tools that will
be essential for addressing such issues. To this end, the program will
support fundamental research in mathematics and statistics whose primary
emphasis will be on meeting the aforementioned computational and
data-related challenges. This program is part of the wider Computational
and Data-enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) enterprise in NSF that
seeks to address this emerging discipline; see

The research supported by the CDS&E-MSS program will aim to advance
mathematics or statistics in a significant way and will address
computational or big-data challenges.  Proposals of interest to the
program will include a Principal Investigator or co-Principal
Investigator who is a researcher in the mathematical or statistical
sciences in an area supported by the Division of Mathematical Sciences.
The program encourages submission of proposals that include
multidisciplinary collaborations or the training of mathematicians and
statisticians in CDS&E.

In fiscal year 2012, this program will be co-funded by the NSF Office of
Cyberinfrastructure (OCI).
