Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) Program Webinar

Friday February 23 - 1:00pm

February 23, 2018 1:00 PM  to 
February 23, 2018 2:30 PM

This solicitation focuses upon the integration of the data and software elements of advanced cyberinfrastructure.  By integrating two major and long-running NSF program solicitations, Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) and Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), under a single umbrella called Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI), NSF seeks to enable funding opportunities that are flexible and responsive to the evolving and emerging needs in integrated data and software cyberinfrastructure.
The goal of the integrated CSSI program is to create a cyberinfrastructure (CI) ecosystem that spans all levels of the data and software stack and scales from individual or small groups of innovators to large community resources. The program addresses all aspects of cyberinfrastructure, from embedded sensor systems and instruments, to desktops and high-end data and computing systems, to major instruments and facilities. The program will continue to nurture the interdisciplinary processes required to support the entire data and software lifecycle, and will successfully integrate development and support with innovation and research. Furthermore, the program will result in the development of sustainable CI communities that transcend scientific and geographical boundaries. The program envisions vibrant partnerships among academia, government laboratories and industry, including international entities, for the development and stewardship of a sustainable infrastructure that can enhance productivity and accelerate innovation in science and engineering. Furthermore, integrated education activities will play a key role in developing and sustaining the cyberinfrastructure over time and in creating a workforce capable of fully realizing its potential to transform science and engineering.
