Chemistry's Dear Colleague Letters (DCL)
November 7, 2019
- Dear Colleague Letter: The Division of Chemistry (CHE), in the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Employment Opportunity for a Program Director (Open Until Filled) (CHE 19-001)
Request for Information:
- NSF Dear Colleague Letter, Request for Information (RFI) on Data-Focused Cyberinfrastructure Needed to Support Future Data-Intensive Science and Engineering Research (NSF 20-015).
The challenges of growing volumes of scientific data – their availability, transmission, accessibility, management, and utilization – have become urgent and ubiquitous across NSF-supported science, engineering, and education disciplines. To inform the formulation of a strategic NSF response to these imperatives, the RFI asks the research community to update NSF on their data-intensive scientific questions and challenges and associated needs specifically related to data-focused cyberinfrastructure.
The outcome of the 2017 NSF RFI DCL on Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (NSF CI 2030), which informed subsequent CI investments and a new Vision for Transforming Science Through Cyberinfrastructure, is available at https://www.nsf.gov/cise/oac/ci2030/rfi_responses.jsp, https://www.nsf.gov/cise/oac/ci2030/ACCI_CI2030Report_Approved_Pub.pdf, and https://www.nsf.gov/cise/oac/vision/blueprint-2019/.
Submission deadline. Contributions must be received on or before 5:00 PM Eastern time on December 16, 2019.
For questions concerning this RFI please contact us via email@example.com.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2019, its budget is $8.1 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
