SYNOPSIS

The NSF CISE Directorate supports research and education projects that develop new knowledge in all aspects of computing, communications, and information science and engineering, as well as advanced cyberinfrastructure, through the following core programs:

Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC):

  • OAC Core Research (OAC Core) program;

Division of Computing and Communication Foundations (CCF):

  • Algorithmic Foundations (AF) program;
  • Communications and Information Foundations (CIF) program;
  • Foundations of Emerging Technologies (FET) program; and
  • Software and Hardware Foundations (SHF) program;

Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS):

  • CNS Core (CNS Core) program;

Division of Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS):

  • Cyber-Human Systems (CHS) program;
  • Information Integration and Informatics (III) program; and
  • Robust Intelligence (RI) program.

Proposers are invited to submit proposals in several project classes, which are defined as follows:

  • Small Projects -- up to $500,000 total budget with durations up to three years: projects in this class may be submitted to OAC, CCF, CNS, and IIS;
  • Medium Projects -- $500,001 to $1,200,000 total budget with durations up to four years: projects in this class may be submitted to CCF, CNS, and IIS only; and
  • Large Projects -- $1,200,001 to $3,000,000 total budget with durations up to five years: projects in this class may be submitted to CNS only.

A more complete description of these project classes can be found in Section II. Program Description of this document.
