NSF's CNS Division supports research and education activities that address new computing and networking technologies and explore new ways to enhance exist¬ing technologies. The Division seeks to develop a better understanding of the funda¬mental properties of computer and network systems and to create better abstrac¬tions and tools for designing, building, analyzing, and measuring future systems. The Division also supports the computing infrastructure needed for experimental com¬puter science and it coordinates cross-CISE and cross-NSF activities. In addition to research proposal solicitations, CNS also considers propos¬als focusing on education, workforce development, and other activities that are of general interest to the CISE community and that are not covered by other NSF so¬licitations.
This session will cover current CISE and other NSF programs of importance to re¬searchers in trustworthy distributed computing and sensor systems such as: Computer Systems Research (CSR), Trustworthy Computing (TC), CISE Computing Re-search Infrastructure (CRI), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS), Data Intensive Computing, Network Science and Engineering (NetSE), Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI), Expeditions in Computing (Expeditions), Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI), Broadening Participa-tion in Computing (BPC), and CISE Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Education in Computing (CPATH). New modes of funding, research opportunities, and directions of these programs will be described.
A Q&A session will follow the formal presentation.
