NSF CI 2030: Requesting input on science challenges & associated cyberinfrastructure needs
January 17, 2017
A new NSF Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) has been posted, a Request For Information (RFI) on Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure to Support Science and Engineering Research (NSF CI 2030), https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf17031.
NSF Directorates and Offices are jointly requesting input from the research community on science challenges and associated cyberinfrastructure needs over the next decade and beyond. Contributions to this RFI will be used during the coming year to inform the Foundation's strategy and plans for advanced cyberinfrastructure investments. We invite bold, forward-looking ideas that will provide opportunities to advance the frontiers of science and engineering well into the future.
Please note that the deadline for submissions is April 5, 2017 5:00 PM ET and that the DCL points to an external submission website.
Questions about this effort and the submission process should be sent to William Miller, Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, at the following address: email@example.com.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
