NSF seeks input on dataset needs for conducting research on computer and network systems

March 16, 2021

An NSF Request for Information (RFI) seeks input from the community on the specific needs related to collecting, sharing, and utilizing public or private datasets for networking and computer systems research, and any challenges associated with each.

The input could identify requirements for datasets that may include, but are not limited to, spectrum data, physical layer data, network and Internet measurement data, workload data, power/performance data, and other systems data.

Contributions must be received on or before 5:00 PM Eastern time on May 21, 2021.

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.
