Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Recent NSF Program Solicitations

July 16th, 2013 / in Uncategorized / by Shar Steed

nsfThe NSF has recently issued three new program solicitations: Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC), Computer and Network Systems (CNS): Core Programs, and Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS): Core Programs.

According to its solicitation, “The Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program welcomes proposals that address Cybersecurity from a Trustworthy Computing Systems (TWC) perspective and/or a Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) perspective. In addition, we welcome proposals that integrate research addressing both of these perspectives as well as proposals focusing entirely on Cybersecurity Education.”

CISE’s Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS) is supporting research and education projects in two core programs:

  • Computer Systems Research (CSR) program; and
  • Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS) program.

“The Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS) supports research and education activities that invent new computing and networking technologies and that explore new ways to make use of existing technologies. The Division seeks to develop a better understanding of the fundamental properties of computer and network systems and to create better abstractions and tools for designing, building, analyzing, and measuring future systems.”

From the Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS): Core Programs solicitation:

CISE’s Division of Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS) supports research and education projects that develop new knowledge in three core programs:

  • The Cyber-Human Systems (CHS) program;
  • The Information Integration and Informatics (III) program; and
  • The Robust Intelligence (RI) program.

IIS is also responsible for managing the review process for proposals in Computer Graphics and Visualization;
