Dear Colleague Letter: Medical / Health Cyber Physical Systems Proposals

November 8, 2023

Dear Colleagues:

The Directorates for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) and Engineering (ENG) are planning to issue an update of the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) program solicitation (NSF 21-551) in the near future. The updated version is anticipated to include new language appropriate to proposals in the CPS medical domain that will indicate the CPS program will only accept CPS medical / health proposals in the Small Projects category. Proposals addressing medical / health CPS at the Medium Projects level are instead strongly encouraged to be submitted to the Smart Health and Biomedical Research in the Era of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Data Science (SCH) program solicitation (NSF 23-614) and its future releases. Prospective proposers should review the current SCH solicitation, paying particular attention to its thematic interests within CPS in the “Project Description” section, as well as the program’s submission deadlines.

For more information, including questions about this DCL, please contact:

David Corman, Program Director, NSF/CISE,

Vishal Sharma, Assistant Program Director, NSF/CISE,

Thomas Martin, Program Director, NSF/CISE,
