Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC): Research Core Program×

Funder: NSF

Program guidelines: 18-567

Full proposal window: Nov. 1-15

The Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) supports translational research and education activities in all aspects of advanced cyberinfrastructure (CI) that lead to deployable, scalable, and sustainable systems capable of transforming science and engineering research. Advanced CI includes the spectrum of computational, data, software, networking, and security resources, tools, and services, along with the computational and data skills and expertise, that individually and collectively can transform science and engineering…. OAC research investments are characterized by their translational nature, i.e., building on basic research results and spanning the design to practice stages. They are further characterized by one or more of the following key attributes: multi-disciplinary, extreme-scale, driven by science and engineering research, end-to-end, and deployable as robust research CI.

Integrative Strategies for Understanding Neural and Cognitive Systems (NCS)×

Funder: National Science Foundation

Program guidelines: 18-533

Letter of intent deadlines: Dec. 7, 2018, for FRONTIERS FY19 competition; Jan. 8, 2019, for FOUNDATIONS FY19 competition

The complexities of brain and behavior pose fundamental questions in many areas of science and engineering, drawing intense interest across a broad spectrum of disciplinary perspectives while eluding explanation by any one of them. Rapid advances within and across disciplines are leading to an increasingly interwoven fabric of theories, models, empirical methods and findings, and educational approaches, opening new opportunities to understand complex aspects of neural and cognitive systems through integrative multidisciplinary approaches. This program calls for innovative, convergent, boundary-crossing proposals that can best capture those opportunities and map out new research frontiers.
