Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




This solicitation seeks proposals in areas that are scientifically timely, and that benefit from the intellectual contributions of researchers with expertise in a number of computing fields and/or sub-fields.   The cross-cutting programs for FY 2011 are:

  • Network Science and Engineering;
  • Smart Health and Wellbeing; and
  • Trustworthy Computing.

The full descriptions of these programs can be found in the II. Program Description section of this solicitation.

CISE expects that over time, these cross-cutting programs will evolve or be absorbed into the core programs, and that new cross-cutting programs will be introduced.   For example, the FY 2009-2010 Data-intensive Computing program is absorbed into the CISE core programs for FY 2011, and the Smart Health and Wellbeing cross-cutting program is being introduced in FY 2011.  CISE anticipates that the FY 2009-2011 Network Science and Engineering program will be absorbed into the CISE core programs next year, in FY 2012.

For Smart Health and Wellbeing and Trustworthy Computing, proposers are invited to submit proposals in three project classes, which are defined as follows:

  • Small Projects - up to $500,000 total budget with durations up to three years;
  • Medium Projects - $500,001 to $1,200,000 total budget with durations up to four years; and
  • Large Projects - $1,200,001 to $3,000,000 total budget with durations up to five years.

Network Science and Engineering proposals may be submitted only in two of the three project classes defined above: Medium and Large.

A more complete description of the project classes can be found in section II. Program Description, of this document.

CISE investments in Small, Medium and Large projects complement the directorate’s investments in the Expeditions in Computing program,, where projects are funded at levels of up to $10,000,000 total for durations up to 5 years.
