NSF Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs)

The Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) program legosis an integral part of CIF21 (Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering), which considers an integrated, scalable, and sustainable cyberinfrastructure as crucial for innovation in science and engineering. The DIBBs program encourages development of robust and shared data-centric cyberinfrastructure capabilities to accelerate interdisciplinary and collaborative research in areas of inquiry stimulated by data.

Effective solutions will bring together cyberinfrastructure expertise and domain researchers, to ensure that the resulting cyberinfrastructure components address the researchers’ data needs.  The activities should address the data challenges arising in a disciplinary or cross-disciplinary context.

The proposal deadline for this program is April 9, 2014.

NSF Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences

The Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (CDS&E-MSS) program accepts proposals that confront and embrace the host of mathematical and statistical challenges presented to the scientific and engineering communities by the ever-expanding role of computational modeling and simulation on the one hand, and the explosion in production of digital and observational data on the other. The goal of the program is to promote the creation and development of the next generation of mathematical and statistical theories and tools that will be essential for addressing such issues. To this end, the program will support fundamental research in mathematics and statistics whose primary emphasis will be on meeting the aforementioned computational and data-related challenges.

The proposal deadline for this program is December 9, 2013.

NSF Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation – SSE & SSI (SI2-SSE&SSI)

nsf_logo

NSF has established the Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program, with the overarching goal of transforming innovations in research and education into sustained software resources that are an integral part of the cyberinfrastructure. SI2 is a long-term investment focused on catalyzing new thinking, paradigms, and practices in developing and using software to understand natural, human, and engineered systems. SI2‘s intent is to foster a pervasive cyberinfrastructure to help researchers address problems of unprecedented scale, complexity, resolution, and accuracy by integrating computation, data, networking, observations and experiments in novel ways.
