01/10/2019 - NSF Full Proposal
Eligibility:  UCSB may submit three Institutional Infrastructure (II) proposals.
Campus Procedure:  Interested investigators must submit a notice of intent to Kelly Pillsbury at by Tuesday,October 9th at 5 p.m. The notice should include: · PI Name · Names of co-PIs or potential collaborators · Brief description of the proposed project (no more than one paragraph).

Summary:  This program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that will support focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This infrastructure will enable CISE researchers to advance the frontiers of CISE research. There are two classes of awards currently supported: 1) Institutional Infrastructure (II) awards support the creation of new (II-NEW) CISE research infrastructure or the enhancement (II-EN) of existing CISE research infrastructure to enable world-class CISE research opportunities at the awardee and collaborating institutions. Requests may be up to $1m. 2) Community Infrastructure (CI) awards support the planning (CI-P) for new CISE community research infrastructure, the creation of new (CI-NEW) CISE research infrastructure, the enhancement (CI-EN) of existing CISE infrastructure, or the sustainment (CI-SUSTAIN) of existing CISE community infrastructure to enable world-class CISE research opportunities for broad-based communities of CISE researchers that extend well beyond the awardee institutions. The majority of the CI awards will be made in the $500,000 - $1,000,000 range, though a very small number of CI awards may be made in the $1,000,000 - $2,000,000 range.
