and Information Science and Engineering

Talk Abstract:
This pres

entation provides an organizational overview a description of new projects
and presents recent funding opportunities within the CNS Division of the C

ISE Directorate at the National Science Foundation. The latest funding oppo

rtunities will be presented along with descriptions of strategic objectives
of the Foundation significant Divisional competitions cross cutting them

es and emphasis areas infrastructure programs educational programs and Di

rectorate-scope national initiatives.
Of special interest in this talk

will be the Computer Systems Research (CSR) solicitation. This year NSF has
three areas where special opportunity funding may be obtained. The talk wi

ll overview the Computer Systems Basic Research solicitation and these spec

ial emphasis areas managed by the Program Directors. The intention of the t

alk is to bring the audience up-to-date with current activities at NSF of s

pecial interest to the Computer System Research community.
