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.
SYNOPSIS The Division of Computer and Communications Research (C-CR)and the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Defense Sciences Office of the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA) plan to support research and development teams focusing on mathematical and computational innovations relevant to representation and computational manipulation of geometrical objects. These awards will be administered by NSF. Areas of specific interest include:- Computational Topology and Geometry - Computational and Geometric Cartography, including Spatial Statistics - Geometric aspects of Graphics and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) We particularly encourage proposals for efforts involving collaborations of experts in the mathematical and computational sciences with other scientists, engineers, and practitioners representing diverse application areas. Proposals for incremental improvements or ongoing efforts will not be selected for funding.
