Information and Intelligent Systems: Advancing Human-Centered Computing, Information Integration and Informatics, and Robust Intelligence
NSF's Division of Information and Intelligent Systems intends to fund science and engineering research and education projects that develop new knowledge in the following three core technical areas:
* Human-Centered Computing (HCC);
* Information Integration and Informatics (III); and
* Robust Intelligence (RI).
In addition to the three core technical areas, IIS will support research in two cross-cutting technical areas:
* Human-Robot (and/or Agents) Interaction (HRI); and
* Information Privacy and Security (IPS).
IIS also intends to fund curriculum development (IISCD) activities that have the potential to greatly improve higher education in IIS core and cross-cutting areas. Projects should result in new knowledge and prepare future generations of professionals in IIS areas of research and education.
To ensure that proposals with roughly comparable scope and objectives are reviewed together, IIS proposals are divided into three classes by budget size:
[*] Small Projects (up to $450,000 total budget);
[*] Medium Projects ($450,001 to $900,000 total budget); and
[*] Large Projects ($900,001 to $1,800,000 total budget).
Proposals with budgets that exceed $1,800,000 will be returned without review.
Additional Information on Eligibility:
Proposals may only be submitted by the following: * Non-profit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional societies and similar organizations in the US associated with educational or research activities. * Universities and colleges: US universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges)
Current Closing Date for Applications: Oct 19, 2006 October 19, 2006 for Large Projects November 02, 2006 for Medium Projects December 06, 2006 for Small Projects
Funding Opportunity Number: 06-572
Expected Number of Awards: 150
Estimated Total Program Funding: $50,000,000
NSF Grant Opportunity #06-572
Considering ISCID is a professional society focussed on Information, is this a suitable opportunity for members to formulate a research proposal and apply for a grant?
