6 CISE Core Programs Funding Opportunities at CCF: NSF IIS: NSF CNS: NSF Project Types: Medium and Large team awards of larger funding levels and longer durations multi-investigator collaborative projects Small: one or two investigator projects CISE-wide Deadlines (Time Windows): August 1 – 30, 2009; Medium (same dates annually thereafter) Nov. 1 – 28, 2009: Large (same dates annually thereafter) Dec. 1 – 17, 2009: Small (same dates annually thereafter) 12/24/20136SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS 2009

7 CISE Cross-Cutting Programs: FY2010 Three focus areas Data-Intensive Computing Network Science and Engineering Trustworthy Computing Current solicitation: NSF Same proposal windows Areas that cut across the CISE divisions and that could benefit from intellectual contributions of researchers with expertise in a number of fields or sub-fields 12/24/20137SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS 2009

8 Additional CISE-wide Programs Expeditions in Computing Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI) CreativeIT Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) CISE PATHways (CPATH) to Revitalized Education in Computing Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) Computer Research Infrastructure (CRI) 12/24/20138SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS 2009

9 EAGER and RAPID The Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGER) program will be replaced by the following two programs: Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID) – will support quick-response research on natural or anthropogenic disasters and similar unanticipated events Requests may be for up to $200K and of one year duration project descriptions are expected to be brief (two to five pages) and include clear statements as to why the proposed research is of an urgent nature EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) will support high-risk, exploratory and potentially transformative research. Requests may be for up to $300K and of up to two years duration. project description is expected to be brief (five to eight pages) and include clear statements as to why this project is appropriate for EAGER funding More details in Grant Proposal Guide (09-1) 12/24/20139SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS 2009

11 NSF Experiences Invaluable insights into NSF processes Research vision and strategic planning Identifying and structuring programs Writing program solicitations Interacting with researchers Proposal review process (Gold Standard) Making awards Award follow on activities Annual Reports and Highlights 12/24/2013SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS

12 Preparing an NSF Proposal Website: Study NSF Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) Find previous awards in similar research areas Contact PIs in fields of interest Focus on Transformative Research Enhancing Support of Transformative Research at the NSF, May 2007, 12/24/2013SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS

13 12/24/2013SIGHEALTH Panel - AMCIS Keys for NSF Success Understand the Merit Review Process Get to know the Program Managers in your areas of interest Call and/or visit Submit innovative proposals In response to existing Program Solicitations Organize planning workshops to identify research directions Talk to the cognizant program director(s) Help NSF in reviewing submitted proposals Contact the cognizant program director(s) to volunteer Agree to provide a review or serve on a review panel when asked
